St. Francis Hospital is focusing on helping people 50 and older live healthier longer lives by reviving the hospital’s PrimeTime program. The program, which was originally launched in 2007 as PrimeTime Seniors, kicked off a new season of life in May 2017. Now simply called PrimeTime, the program provides educational programs and free health screenings.
As we seek to make our community healthier, we want to continue in the rich tradition of community service established by St. Francis as we provide educational opportunities and resources to help people live healthier lives.

Is arthritis preventing you from enjoying life? People of all ages, genders and races have arthritis, and it is the leading cause of disability in America. More than 50 million people – including thousands in the Columbus area – have some type of arthritis. It is most common among women and occurs more frequently as people get older.
Learn more about the newest treatment options for people with arthritis at a free seminar being offered by St. Francis. The program – entitled “All About Arthritis” – will provide an overview of different types of arthritis and treatment options. Two orthopaedic surgeons will be featured.
Common symptoms of arthritis include joint swelling, pain, stiffness and decreased range of motion. Symptoms may come and go. Severe arthritis can result in chronic pain, inability to do daily activities and make it difficult to walk or climb stairs. Arthritis can cause permanent joint changes. These changes may be visible, such as knobby finger joints, but often the damage can only be seen on X-ray. Join us for this free program in the evening or the morning at one of these two dates:
Both programs are being held in the Sara Ruth Carroll Auditorium in the Butler Pavilion at St. Francis. To register, call 706.320.8060 or email PrimeTime@sfhga.com
