MVHC Announces Free Cervical Cancer Screenings

January 03, 2023

Beginning February 1 and continuing through April, MVHC will provide a free cervical cancer screening to any woman age 21 to 65 who reside in Muskingum, Morgan, Coshocton or Guernsey County. Appointments for the Pap test can be made by calling the MVHC Centralized Call Center at (740) 891-9000 or (888) 454-5157. 

Annually, nearly 13,000 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer and it is estimated that over 4,000 women will die from the disease this year. But, according to Jeanie Blake, MVHC Chief Quality Officer, when detected at an early stage the 5-year survival rate for women with invasive cervical cancer is 92%. “We hope that all women in the four counties we serve will take advantage of this opportunity and call to schedule an appointment. The few minutes it takes to have the test completed can literally save a person’s life”, Blake stated. 

Funding for the free screenings is being provided by the Patient Care Charitable Fund, which was started in 2014 to support the mission of MVHC. To learn more about the fund, please call Randy Cochrane at (740) 891-9099.

MVHC is a federally qualified health center which provides quality, accessible and affordable primary health care to over 35,000 patients in the four county area.

MVHC Announces 'Vaida Lives On' Fund for Child Safety

January 03, 2023

Each year more than 17,000 children die nationwide to preventable accidents.

Kali Randall of Frazeysburg lost her 3 year-old daughter Vaida Randall in April from injuries sustained when a television weighing over 120 pounds fell onto her. Now, Randall along with the Muskingum Valley Health Center is launching a 'Vaida Lives On' fund to promote child safety.

"After the accident I came to my daughter's doctor and asked him to help me raise awareness here at MVHC to save other children and parents from the same thing that my family is going through and what my daughter went through," said Kali Randall.

The fund will help ensure that parents are made aware of the different types of preventable accidents. Something Randall said her daughter Vaida would have greatly supported.

"You couldn't take your eyes off for a minute. She was just full of life and energy and the hard fact is, you have to take your eyes off of them sometimes and if you have to your home should be safe and mine wasn't. I know that she would've wanted me to save other children," said Kali Randall.
