Delta County residents will want to mark their 2019 calendars for Delta County community-wide health fairs which include early blood draw events in early February or health fairs in mid-March in Paonia, Cedaredge and Delta. Delta County Memorial Hospital Volunteers and Lions clubs in Delta, Cedaredge and Paonia will be partnering in the annual community health fair events again. There will be no price increases on the cost of any of the blood work in 2019.
Online registration through the hospital website is available for early blood draws or health fairs at deltahospital.org. Appointments will reduce wait times and eliminate long lines on event days.
Just click on the health fair heart artwork on the home page and residents will immediately be connected to an online registration process that is very user friendly. Residents may select a location in Paonia, Cedaredge or Delta and a date for early blood draw events during early February or health fairs scheduled for mid-March.
If something occurs where there is a change in plans after a resident has pre-registered through the hospital website, there is an opportunity to just re-register for a changed date, time or location. The latest registration entered by a resident is the one that will be used by Delta County Memorial Hospital.
There are no call-in dates for making appointments. Anyone having trouble registering online at deltahospital.org may call Western Health Screenings at 1-800-410-3225 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday, or Delta County Memorial Hospital - Paula Carter at 874-2299 or Kendra Dorr at 874-6411.
