Minnie Hamilton Health System Glenville Office Relocated to WACO Center

Waco

Minnie Hamilton Health System Glenville Office, in conjunction with Glenville State College and Glenville State College foundation, would like to announce our their relocation to the new WACO Center located at 921 Mineral Road.  We are excited to announce that the new location provides more space to include our Physical Therapy Department and more exam rooms to improve patient flow.  

New Lung Cancer Screening Tool Available

ScansAccording to the American Lung Society, lung cancer is the leading cancer killer in both men and women in the United States.  The lung cancer five-year survival rate (16.3%) is lower than many other leading cancer sites, such as the colon (65.2%), breast (90.0%) and prostate (99.9%).  The five-year survival rate for lung cancer is 52.6 percent for cases detected when the disease is still localized (within the lungs). However, only 15 percent of lung cancer cases are diagnosed at an early stage.

Beginning October 1, 2013, Minnie Hamilton Hospital’s Radiology department will begin to offer a new screening for early detection of tumors in the lungs.  It is a low-dose CT scan of the lungs.  According to an article in the August 12, 2013 issue of Time magazine, there are 94 million current and former smokers in the U.S. and every year 160,000 of them die from lung cancer.  A study released by the National Cancer Institute called the National Lung Screening Trial, demonstrated that using low-dose CT instead of traditional X-ray resulted in a 20 percent decrease in this death rate. 

Because of the high rate of smokers in and around Calhoun County, this low-cost screening could be a valuable tool in diagnosing our at-risk population early with lung tumors before they show symptoms and cancer spreads outside the lung area. 

The expected cost of this screening will be approximately $125.00.  Because this is a screening, at this time most insurance companies are not covering the cost of this.  Also, because of the low cost, this screening will not be eligible for sliding fee.

We, at the radiology department of Minnie Hamilton, are committed to providing state-of-the-art testing close to home.  See your doctor to determine if you could benefit from this new screening.

Home Sleep Apnea Testing

Minnie Hamilton Health System, in conjunction with NovaSom Inc., is proud to announce the introduction of home Obstructive Sleep Apnea Testing.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea is a serious medical condition that affects 18 million Americans. OSA is characterized by abnormal pauses or low breathing during sleep.  If you or a loved one is showing sleep apnea symptoms, such as loud snoring or daytime sleepiness, it may be comforting to know you're not alone.  Undiagnosed and untreated, sleep apnea can lead to serious health problems such as high blood pressure, heart attacks and strokes, and has been associated with depression, diabetes, and sexual dysfunction.  In addition, untreated sleep apnea may be responsible for depression, impaired work productivity, and higher risk of motor vehicle accidents.  Please call Rebecca Ewing at (304)354-9722 for more information or to schedule an appointment.
