Community Health Screening
SATA CommHealth believes in preventive healthcare. Health screening is vital to detect diseases that do not produce early warning signs. These silent killers include diabetes, hypertension and high cholesterol.
Through our different specialised tests and screening packages which include measurement of blood glucose, lipid profile, blood pressure, Body Mass Index (BMI) etc., patients who have abnormal readings will be advised to seek further consultation or treatment from their doctors, at SATA CommHealth or polyclinics.
These health screenings are organised through community partnerships with grassroots, religious and other voluntary organisations that serve the community.
Vaccinations offered at our medical centres include those with regard to Influenza or flu, Typhoid, Anti-tetanus, Chickenpox, Hepatitis A & B, Human papillomavirus (HPV), Measles, Mumps, and Rubella (MMR), Pneumococcal, Shingles and Yellow Fever.
A flu vaccination can be an effective method to prevent influenza virus infection from the more common southern and northern strains and its potentially severe complications. On the other hand, a typhoid vaccination is recommended for food handlers as it prevents the transmission of the bacteria that causes typhoid.
