WOW Offering Pediatric Physicals in August

Hospital

Wyandot On Wheels is offering pediatric physicals and more during its community visits in August.

A pediatric provider will be aboard WOW for its community visits in August to provide physicals for children from newborn through age 17. No appointments are needed for physicals on WOW, and the examinations will be billed to patients’ insurances.

The pediatric providers on WOW also welcome parents’ questions and concerns about their children’s health and development.

The WOW visits are scheduled throughout the county on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. The bus is parked just north of the square in Sycamore on the first Wednesday of each month. On the second Wednesday, WOW is at the Forest VFW. The bus travels to the Nevada United Methodist Church on the third Wednesday, and the fourth Wednesday of every month finds WOW at the Harpster Township Hall. The Carey Senior Depot hosts WOW every Thursday.

Wyandot On Wheels offers lab draws for blood tests and community health screenings. The physician-ordered lab draws are billed to patients’ insurances. The screenings are a special outreach offering of the hospital for low-cost services that are important indicators for disease and health status.

In addition to blood draws, WOW Coordinator Michelle Gullifer offers free blood pressure checks and schedules screening mammograms for early detection of cancer. She welcomes phone calls (419-294-4991, extension 1969), emails (mgullifer@wyandotmemorial.org) or visits to WOW for more information about the community visits or monthly specials.
