Convenient and affordable cardiovascular program now offered at Beaumont Hospital, Taylor

Heart health screenings are one of the most common ways people can find out about their overall fitness of their cardiovascular health, or if there are any concerns that may require more testing and follow-up care.

Beaumont’s popular 7 for $70 heart screenings are now being offered at Beaumont Hospital, Taylor. They are also available at the Dearborn, Grosse Pointe, Royal Oak, Trenton, Troy and Wayne hospitals.

The cost of a complete a comprehensive heart disease screening is $70. The tests are specifically designed to identify risk factors and help clinicians recommend next steps to improve your heart and vascular health.

The screening includes seven tests:

  • Blood Pressure Measurement
  • Body Mass Index Measurement
  • 12-lead Electrocardiogram, or EKG Stroke Screening/Carotid Artery Ultrasound
  • Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Ultrasound
  • Peripheral Artery Disease Screening
  • Blood Cholesterol and Hemoglobin A1c Measurements*

All of the screenings are read by board-certified Beaumont doctors. The results and a follow-up letter are sent to you to share with your primary care physician to determine follow-up care.

“Beaumont's 7 for $70 heart screening program is a great way to find out if you or someone you love are at risk for heart disease,” said Lisa Bain, director of Diagnostics at Beaumont, Taylor. “According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 1 million Americans survive heart attacks each year. If you’ve experienced a cardiac event or heart-related condition, cardiac rehabilitation may help reduce your risk of future heart problems.”

Better management of cardiovascular care can help with overall risk factors, leading to a heart health plan created with your primary care physician.
