SwedishAmerican Center For Women Offers Walk-in Screening Digital Mammograms
July 2, 2013
In order to meet the needs of busy women, walk-in screening digital mammograms are now available every Tuesday and Thursday in July at the SwedishAmerican Center For Women. No appointment is needed; women can simply walk in at their convenience between 3:15 p.m. and 4:30 p.m. A physician referral is not needed for a screening mammogram, and most insurance is accepted including Medicare.
According to the American Cancer Society, getting a mammogram every year is important in finding breast cancer early. The ACS recommends women age 40 and over get one every year, along with a breast exam by their doctor or nurse.
The SwedishAmerican Center For Women is located on the second floor of the Renaissance Pavilion at 1340 Charles Street. For more information, please call (815) 391-7676.
