Prowers Medical Center Health Fair

Co-Sponsored by Valley National Bank

National Hospital Week began in 1921 and has developed into the nation's largest health care event. The staff at Prowers Medical Center remains committed to improving the health of the people in our community through compassionate care and unwavering dedication.

National Hospital Week gives us the opportunity to continue our annual tradition of holding a community wide celebration that reminds surrounding communities of the essential role the men and women working in our hospital play in caring for their friends and neighbors.

This year's theme "The Healing Heart of Healthcare" celebrates hospitals and the women and men who support the health and wellbeing of their communities through dedication and compassionate care from the heart. From providing treatment and comfort to the sick, to welcoming new life into the world, hospitals are central to a healthy and thriving 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 provide quality and compassionate healthcare.

"A 39 Year 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.
