ROCKINGHAM –The Annual Wellness Screening Event at Moore Regional Hospital-Richmond is a longstanding community event dedicated to enhancing the overall health and well-being of residents of Richmond County and surrounding communities.
“With 39 years of providing free and reduced-cost health screenings, this year’s event continues our commitment to promoting healthy lifestyle choices and identifying illnesses through screenings and early detection,” said Christy Land, MSN, R.N., president, southern region and administrator of MRH-Richmond.
This year’s event will offer screenings from 6 to 9:30 a.m., Sept. 28-30 and again from Oct. 2-3. The screenings include:
- HCV antibody test – $40

You must be at least 18 years old to receive the screenings. For best results, blood work should be done while fasting for at least eight hours prior to tests. Cash, checks and credit cards will be accepted. Participants should enter at the front visitor entrance, and registration will take place on the first floor. All participants will receive a free gift while supplies last.
Results will be made available through FirstHealth MyChart. The MyChart patient portal not only allows access to test results, but it allows FirstHealth patients to communicate safely and securely with their health care providers, manage appointments, refill medications, pay their balances online, review their health history and schedule appointments.
FirstHealth will also offer to link patients with primary care providers in the event they do not have a primary care provider or need someone to review their results.
