Prevent Long-term Health Issues with Regular Health Check-ups

By Sponsored content 26 February 2019
Gleneagles Hong Kong Hospital offers a wide range of comprehensive health screening packages to help you make your health and wellbeing a priority.
With health, wealth, and prosperity on many an agenda for the new Lunar New Year, there is no better time to prioritise physical health. Not only can regular health checks help you understand your body better, but they can also help to prevent long-term health issues from developing under the radar and causing lasting damage to your health. And when problems do occur, early detection can significantly improve the chances of successful treatment and cures. Gleneagles Hong Kong Hospital (GHK) offers a variety of checkup and screening packages to meet the needs of its patients. Medical screening packages cover doctor’s examinations, bloodwork, diagnostic imaging, eye testing, and cardiac and dietetic assessments and consultations. Executive Health Screening Packages include a general health check-up plan, while Privilege Health Screening Packages incorporate more comprehensive testing, including an exercise treadmill test, mammogram and breast ultrasounds for female patients, upper abdominal ultrasounds, and prostatic testing in males. Additionally, Platinum Health Screening Packages include the Privilege Screening tests, as well as detailed eye testing (including auto-refraction and fundus photos), and echocardiograms. While health check-ups are advisable for everyone, they are most strongly encouraged among people who have experienced cardiac symptoms and chest pain. As one of the leading causes of death in Hong Kong, early detection and management of cardiac conditions can be a life-saving strategy. GHK offers three investigative packages for chest pain, with basic additions such as echocardiograms and treadmill testing, with the option to add a CT coronary angiogram. Doctors will recommend packages after assessing the patient’s condition. These all-inclusive, fixed-price medical packages are priced from $12,800. Special rates and privileges are extended to select HSBC, American Express and Hang Seng credit card holders.
