Gwen Blakley came to the Community Village Hospital Day understanding the value offered by it medical community.

Blakley received a flu shot, and with her sister, Jacquely, attended screenings and informational sessions offered for free at the Village Hospital campus.  “If it’s available why not go through the screenings. You may never know what you may have.”

In the past the Blakleys had attended diabetes screenings and sessions, living will seminars and other health-related topics geared toward their lifestyle. “The living will seminar was very informative and diabetes very helpful,” Gwen said.

Village Hospital celebrated its fifth anniversary with a day of free health screenings, games and activities.

Carotid ultrasound checks, generally $700 - $1,000 for the ultrasound checks was offered free with the Spartanburg Regional Foundation underwriting the cost and imaging services.

The hospital offered family and friends CPR classes, tours of the Bearden-Josey mobile mammography truck, Regional One helicopter viewing and other health checks.

Sparky, from Pet Partners, was a hit with the adults and children. The Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, is an English breed, that is allowed in the emergency rooms and hospital rooms, with the patients' permission, to serve as a calming influence.

Kimberly Carver of Volunteer Services was escorting Sparky Saturday.
