Did You Know?

Antibiotics only treat bacterial infections; they don't work on viruses like the ones that cause colds or the flu.

When antibiotics aren't needed, they wont make patients feel better, and could have harmful side-effects.

Health care providers can prevent infections and slow the spread of antibiotic resistance by advising patients to cover coughs, clean hands, stay home when sick, and get recommended vaccines.

Cancer Screening 
Cancer screening services for women are provided on a sliding fee scale. This includes a clinical breast exam, pap smear and pelvic exam. Limited lab tests are done as needed. Screening mammograms are offered free or at a reduced rate (according to income) to those who do not have Medicare, Medicaid or other insurance. Patients are also counseled on healthier lifestyles. Treatment for abnormal paps and mammograms may be covered under our Kentucky Women’s Cancer Program.
