For the past 100 years, heart disease has been the leading cause of death in the United States.

American Heart Month remains an important reminder of just how vital a healthy heart is for your overall health, and that it’s never too late to take charge of your heart health.

As part of American Heart Month, Columbus Community Hospital will offer free cholesterol and A1C screenings
February 13 – 15 from 8 a.m. – 9 a.m. at the Columbus Wellness Center, with no appointment necessary.

High cholesterol and blood sugar are some of the risk factors that can indicate an elevated risk for heart disease, and identifying these risk factors helps our team better care for your heart health.

Building a Heart Healthy Lifestyle

No matter your age or present risk factors, eating a heart-healthy diet, getting regular exercise, and prioritizing quality sleep are essential for maintaining good heart health.

Columbus Community Hospital cares about your heart health. In addition to our medical care, the Columbus Wellness Center offers resources and programs that support heart health, including fitness classes, personal training, and nutrition planning with registered dieticians.

Free A1C screenings are provided as a partnership between Columbus Community Hospital and the Columbus Lions Club.
