Free Health Checks - Yongs...

To expand medical services to those who may not be covered by national insurance, the Yongsan Public Health Center is offering free health checks for foreigners that include blood pressure, blood-sugar, liver function, hyper-cholesterol, hepatitis, STD test, blood, and urine tests.

NOTE:
Just remember to bring your ID and do not eat breakfast before you go.
If you go for an exam on a Saturday, there is no Xray.

HOURS: **
Weekdays:  9-11:30am on weekdays
Weekends: 9-11:30am -  2nd and 4th Saturdays of each month.
*while the official hours indicate that exams can be done until 1PM, the reality is that it's best to come in by 11:30 since staff may take their lunch hour at Noon.
**walk-ins are accepted.

INFO: 02-2199-8161 (Korean only). Often there is no one at the center who speaks a language other than Korean. You can contact 1339 (medical help line) for assistance while you're at the center.

GETTING THERE: The health center is located in the Yongsan District Office building. Go out Exit 3 of  Noksapyeong Station (Line 6, Stop 628). Head toward Itaewon, crossing the street at the light. Right after you cross, turn right, heading toward Banpo Bridge. Walk about 2-3 minutes - the Yongsan District Office is the hug building right by the Crown Hotel.

- some tests may require that one refrain from eating at least 8 hours.
- you must have your ARC - alien registration card- with you.
