Geauga Growth Partnership (GGP) members consider health care to be an issue of concern, and in a 2014 survey indicated a desire for wellness programs that will work with their existing plans. In answer to that, the GGP Health Care Task Force is initiating an answer to that need.

Whether your business has a health care plan or not, GGP, through the services of University Hospitals Geauga Medical Center, is offering the opportunity for free health screenings at four different dates and locations this year.

The first of four health screening opportunities, provided through the UH Mobile Health Unit, will be held Wednesday, May 13, (6 AM-4PM) at Newbury Business Park, 12373 Kinsman Road, Newbury.

UH Geauga Medical Center provides annual sponsorship of Geauga Growth Partnership (GGP), and as part of that partnership is reaching out the GGP members and other businesses. UH makes its self-contained mobile units available to provide screenings, immunizations and health information. Visitors to the unit will be given screenings in blood pressure, cholesterol, blood glucose and body mass index – free of charge.

All businesses within the Newbury and Burton areas are encouraged to take advantage of these services, and the public is also welcome.

Additional UH Mobile Health screening dates are being scheduled through GGP at various locations in July, August and September.  More details will be provided closer to those dates.

UH Geauga Medical Center Mobile Health Unit travels to area businesses to provide money-saving occupational health services.
