Preventive care and wellness helps you develop and maintain a healthy lifestyle and lowers your risk for developing chronic conditions through wellness support and screenings. At Virginia Mason Franciscan Health, we are proud to offer the full spectrum of medical interventions such as screenings and vaccinations for conditions that can be prevented or improved with early detection and a healthy lifestyle.
Wellness is a gift to yourself and your family. We encourage you to schedule a wellness visit and learn about preventive health care.

Your doctor will help you determine which screening tests are appropriate for you and how to best support your overall health goals.
