Every year, thousands of women get mammograms through the convenience of Mercy’s Wellness on Tour bus. Will you be next?
On Thursday, Sept. 4, the bus will be stopping at the Branson K-Mart, located at 1477 Missouri 248. The bus will be parked from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
The Wellness on Tour bus allows Mercy to serve more women, including those whose last mammogram was digital or those who have breast implants. Many patients on the bus have gone several years between screenings; however, screenings are recommended annually for women 40 and older because they’re the best tool for detecting breast cancer in its earliest, most treatable stage.
Mammograms on the bus must be scheduled in advance. Call (417) 8200-2790 to set up an appointment or click here for a list of future stops. The bus is an outreach of the Mercy Breast Center, staffed by highly-qualified Mercy health professionals. The service is offered in 16 rural southwest Missouri communities.
Insurance is filed for the mammogram; please verify coverage with your provider.
