Bone Density

Osteoporosis affects 27 million American women, and those who are post-menopausal are at increased risk for developing the disease. Early detection is key: Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA), an advanced bone measurement technology, uses low-dose radiation to safely, painlessly, and precisely measure Bone Mineral Density (BMD). The exam is fast and non-invasive: you remain fully clothed, comfortably positioned on a padded table as the unit scans the examination sites. The most common exam sites are the fracture-prone hips and spine.

Memorial Snowflakes

If you have been in our hospital lobby recently, you may have noticed the snowflakes adorning the windows alongside our elegant Christmas tree. These beautiful memorial snowflakes are in honor or memoriam of loved ones.

The Hopkins County Health Care Foundation recently kicked-off their annual snowflake campaign. The community is invited to pay tribute to friends or family members with a gift in their honor or memory. The Foundation will then send a notification to the honorees or designated contact to make them aware of the gift. In addition, a beautiful snowflake bearing the name of the honoree is displayed in our main lobby.

This offering of the Foundation has become an annual tradition that is warmly received by donors and honorees alike. The recommended donation for each person honored is $25. Recognition of individuals makes a lovely seasonal gift.

For more information, you may visit the Foundation’s webpage, or call 903.438.4799.
