Prowers Medical Center Health Fair

Co-Sponsored by Valley National Bank

The workforce in America's hospitals is a group of hard working and caring individuals who perform medical miracles ... 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

"Compassion - Innovation - Dedication: The Commitment Continues."

National Hospital Week - May 11-17, 2014 - celebrates the history, technology and dedicated professionals that make our facilities beacons of confidence and care. America's hospitals and health systems are always ready - "Prepared to Care."

Prowers Medical Center takes advantage of this annual healthcare event to thank the dedicated people - the physicians, nurse practitioners, therapists, nurses, engineers, food services workers, housekeepers, office staff, volunteers, administrators and so many more - for their compassionate care. We use National Hospital Week to remind surrounding communities of the essential role the men and women working in our hospital play in caring for their friends and neighbors.

Begun in 1921, National Hospital Week encourages hospitals across the nation to utilize this opportunity to tell their hospital story and to thank the dedicated men and women who make quality healthcare happen.

"A Community Tradition"
Prowers Medical Center has played host to our Annual Health Fair for 35+ years! Valley National Bank has joined forces with us as a Co-Sponsor of the event and it has proven to be a valued community partnership. 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.
