At Decatur Memorial Hospital, we are firm believers in the benefits of preventative healthcare. Although life can be hectic and schedules can be full, taking the time for preventative care is critical for a healthy and happy life.
According to the CDC, chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer and diabetes account for 7 in 10 deaths among Americans. These diseases can be largely prevented through preventative care and a close relationship with your primary care physician. Age-appropriate immunizations, screenings and tests will keep you healthy—and in the event that disease is detected, treatment can be administered quickly to ensure a better outcome.

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is also key in preventing disease. Eating healthy, staying active and avoiding tobacco and alcohol greatly reduces your risk of developing chronic illness—as well as your long-term healthcare costs.
