In observance of Breast Cancer Awareness month, Southern Hills Hospital and Medical Center is offering $75, 3D digital screening mammograms for patients without health insurance.
“During the pandemic a lot of people lost their healthcare coverage,” said Alexis Mussi, Chief Executive Officer for Southern Hills Hospital and Medical Center. “We know the survival rates are much higher when breast cancer is caught early and we didn’t want health insurance to be a barrier for someone needing a mammogram.”
Don’t miss this opportunity to get your annual mammogram. This special program is available Oct. 1, 2020 through Oct. 31, 2020. Program participants must be at least 40 years old. No doctor’s order required for screening mammograms. If you have insurance, check with your provider. You may find out that your mammogram is fully covered.
With approximately one in eight women diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime, it is likely that we all know someone affected by this disease. During Breast Cancer Awareness month, we take this time to educate women about breast cancer and the importance of routine breast health checkups. The best way to reduce the risk is through a combination of regular mammograms, routine breast exams by a healthcare professional and monthly self-breast exams.
Our facilities have introduced heightened precautions and protocols to ensure your mammogram is conducted in a safe place.
