In a bid to promote proactive healthcare and early detection of potential health issues, Avita Hospitals, as well as the Ontario South Campus Lab and Bellville Walk-In Clinic, have come together to offer reduced cost blood screenings throughout the month of October 2023. This initiative aims to provide community members with an affordable opportunity to get a better insight into their health status.

To avail of this offer, individuals are required to purchase a voucher from October 2 to 31 at any of the participating locations: the Cashier’s Office at any Avita Hospital, the lab at Ontario South Campus, or the Bellville Walk-In Clinic.

The available tests under this initiative include a General Panel priced at $30, Prostate-Specific Antigen (PSA) at $25, Glycosylated Hemoglobin (HgbA1c) at $30, Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH) at $15, and Vitamin D, 25 at $30. These tests cover a range of health indicators and can provide valuable information for individuals regarding their hormonal, vitamin, and overall health status.

Vouchers can be redeemed at any of these facilities throughout October 2023. The participating facilities have also made it convenient for individuals by allowing the purchase and redemption of vouchers on the same day, provided the testing preparation requirements are met.

Operational hours are as follows:

  • Hospital Lab: Monday to Friday from 6:00 am to 8:00 pm, Saturday from 7:00 am to Noon, and closed on Sundays.
  • Cashier Office: Monday to Friday from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm.
  • Bellville Walk-In Clinic: Open daily from 8:00 am to 8:00 pm.
  • Ontario South Campus Lab: Monday to Friday from 6:00 am to 6:00 pm, and closed on weekends.

It’s important to note that the results from these tests will be mailed directly to the individuals. The onus is on the individuals to share these results with their healthcare provider as the physicians or providers will not receive a copy of the lab report. However, this initiative ensures that the process of obtaining crucial health information is made easier and more affordable for all.

Unfortunately, vouchers will not be available for purchase or redemption at the Ontario Walk-In Clinic.

This initiative is a significant step towards encouraging preventive healthcare and making health services more accessible to the community. By offering reduced cost blood screenings, the participating health facilities hope to empower individuals to take charge of their health and act early on any potential health issues.
