Multi-Organ Blood Analysis Scheduled in Pulaski

PULASKI, NY – Northern Oswego County Health Services, Inc., will hold its annual Multi-Organ Blood Analysis on May 17 at its 61 Delano St. location in Pulaski according to Daniel Dey, chief executive officer of NOCHSI.

Appointments are being accepted now.  To participate, call 315-341-0080 to schedule your appointment.  Openings are available from 6:30-9:30 a.m.  There are a limited number of time slots available, so you are encouraged to schedule your appointment early.

“These extensive multi-organ blood tests would normally cost more than $200,” said Dey.  “NOCHSI has partnered with Oswego Health to provide all of these tests for just $35.”

The tests can serve as early warning signs for heart, liver, and kidney disease as well as diabetes, and other health problems.  A PSA test can also be done for an additional $20.  This is a special test that can help detect prostate cancer.

NOCHSI Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Patrick Carguello said, “We’re pleased to partner once again with Oswego Health to provide the Greater Oswego County community with these important health-related tests.”

“The response has been very favorable in the past for this blood draw and we anticipate that this year’s event will also be well represented by the community.”

According to Carguello, all test results will be sent directly to the participants’ home and to their own physician in an easy to read format.

“Northern Oswego County Health Services, Inc. is proud to be able to provide our community with quality healthcare,” said Dey “and events like this annual blood analysis are representative of that commitment and dedication.”
