SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (KELO) — A mobile unit from Sanford Health has been parked at the South Dakota state penitentiary in Sioux Falls on a very important medical mission.
Sanford has been conducting heart and vascular screenings for Department of Corrections workers throughout the week.
“With our mobile unit, we do a calcium score so they take a look at the arteries of the heart, we do a EKG, blood pressure and cholesterol,” Lori Visker, with Sanford Health Business Development said.
The screenings take less than an hour for each person.
Find out how these screenings have a personal impact for corrections workers who lost one of their own, due to a heart attack, tonight on HealthBeat.
