Memorial Hospital Teams Up With Channel 4 To Offer Free Screenings

Memorial Hospital September 19, 2013

Jacksonville, FL - Memorial Hospital hosted more than 320 men for its annual prostate and colorectal screening event on September 14th. Memorial teamed up with the Channel 4 to publicize the importance of men over 50 getting tested for prostate and colorectal cancer. Local urologists donate their time to perform the tests. In years past, about 25% of the men that attend the screening are prompted to see their doctors for follow up testing.

As a part of the event, visitors were able to get a hands-on look at the da Vinci® operating system. The da Vinci® offers prostate cancer patients a minimally invasive option for surgery.
