In addition, the Southern Tier’s other Catholic hospital, St. James Mercy in Hornell, will hold a community blood screening at week’s end. That service, being held in conjunction with the Hornell Rotary Club, will take place from 6 to 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 17, in the cafeteria of St. James Mercy Hospital (use the Canisteo Street entrance.) The blood-screening program serves as an early warning system in identifying current or potential health problems. A comprehensive blood screening is conducted for a $35 fee with the results sent to the participant’s physician. Additional screenings for prostate and colorectal cancer are available for an additional fee as well. Call 607-324-8188 to register.
