Pioneer Memorial Hospital & Health Services was founded on the principles of helping people, keeping vital healthcare resources close to home, and providing quality and value for those in need. There have been changes since our founding in 1959, new leadership, new services, remodeled facilities, but the heart of Pioneer Memorial remains the same, providing The right care, right next door.
The people of our region can still access quality healthcare services close to home from skilled medical professionals who care about them.
Over the last three years, Pioneer Memorial Hospital & Health Services has been putting on a three month community challenge at the beginning of each year to improve the health status of our community. The goal of this challenge was to inspire and motivate our community to eat healthy, exercise, and support their weight loss efforts and goals. Pioneer Memorial Hospital & Health Services is happy to announce the dates and plans for the 4th Annual Challenge.
This challenge utilizes DXA Body Composition technology to determine some of the winners of the challenge. The DXA scan is the current “Gold Standard” for accessing total body composition. Your body is made of water, protein, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals, and fat. Too much fat, particularly at the waist, puts you at a higher risk for heart disease, diabetes and certain types of cancer. This scan gives a very precise measurement of total body composition and muscle to fat ratios. The beginning scan will be compared with the last scan and a percentage of fat loss will be determined to calculate the winners. We will also be giving a prize to the individual who loses the most weight and weight percentage overall.
This is a 90 day challenge with each challenger obtaining a Total Body DXA scan at the start of the competition as well as at the end of the competition. The Challenge is available for your first scan from January 2nd – January 31st during regular business hours. The cost to enter the competition is only $30.00! This price includes your pre and post challenge body composition scan. For those over the 350lb weight limit of the scanner, or those not wanting to participate in the DXA total body scan, you may still participate to try and win the other prizes.
This year we are changing how the winners are selected. All winners of the various challenges will win cash prize packages. It is possible for the same individual to win in multiple prize categories. The prizes and challenge categories are:
DXA Scan Most Fat Loss by Percentage -$150 Cash Prize
DXA Scan Most Fat Loss -$50 Cash Prize
DXA Scan Highest Muscle Gain by Percentage - $50 Cash Prize
Most Weight Loss by Percentage -$100 Cash Prize
Most Weight Loss Overall - $100 Cash Prize
This 90 day challenge is a great way to challenge your family, friends, and yourself during a brand new year and is open for anyone over the age of 16. Ages 16-18 must have parental consent. Call 605-326-5161 Ext. 3031 for more information or to schedule your appointment.
