Prowers Medical Center Health Fair

Co-Sponsored by Valley National Bank

National Hospital Week dates back to 1921 where it was suggested that a community wide celebration would help to alleviate public fears about hospitals. Prowers Medical Center (PMC) has taken advantage of this annual event by making it a tradition to celebrate our people and the important role that each member of our staff plays in extending a sense of trust to patients and communities by caring for our friends and neighbors.

This year marks Prowers Medical Center's 37th year hosting a three-day Health Fair event for the surrounding communities. PMC has traditionally held this event during the month of May to bring recognition to our community hospital, our Team Members, and our services during National Hospital Week.

This year's theme "Where Miracles Happen Every Day" puts the spotlight on the fact that hospitals are a part of the community that fosters health and represents hope. From providing treatment and comfort to the sick, to welcoming new life into the world, hospitals are central to a healthy and optimistic community.

The workforce in your community hospital is a group of hard working and caring individuals who perform medical miracles ... 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. We utilize this annual event to tell our hospital story and to thank the dedicated men and women who make quality healthcare happen - physicians, nurse practitioners, therapists, nurses, engineers, food services workers, housekeepers, office staff, volunteers, administrators and so many more providing compassionate care.

"A Community Tradition"
Over the last few years, Valley National Bank has joined forces with us as a Co-Sponsor of the annual Health Fair event and it has proven to be a valued community partnership. We also coordinate with a variety of Community and Healthcare Partners who participate in the event in an effort to better educate and inform individuals about the accessibility to the many health related resources available throughout our community!

This Community Tradition provides Health Fair participants from Lamar and the surrounding communities with an opportunity to experience FREE and Special Savings Discounts for a variety of healthcare screenings.

Join us for our annual Health Fair event on Tuesday, May 12th through Thursday, May 14th. The event will run between the hours of 7:00 am and 11:00 am all three (3) days.

Come be a part of the many great things that are happening at your community hospital!
