Sanford Health now offers heart check center in Kirkwood Mall
(Bismarck, N.D.)—Visitors to Kirkwood Mall can now check their blood pressure for free thanks to a new service provided by Sanford Health. At a blue heart kiosk located near Target, users simply places their arm in the testing cuff, and the heart check center provides a clear and accurate blood pressure reading in just two minutes.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about one in three adults in the United States – an estimated 68 million – has high blood pressure. Typically, there aren’t symptoms, which is why high blood pressure is often called the silent killer. Although blood pressure testing is one of the easiest and most important routine health checks available, many people neglect to have regular screenings. High blood pressure puts people at risk for stroke, heart attack, heart failure or kidney failure.
“The heart check center at Kirkwood Mall is a great resource for the community,” said Diane Kraft, a cardiologist at Sanford Health in Bismarck. “Because it’s so easy to use, it is a powerful tool for early detection.”
