Save a Life Saturday Offers Special Hours for Mammograms

August 13, 2015

Face it. Women juggle a busy schedule of family, home, work and activities. Sometimes the schedule is so busy it prevents them for caring for their own health needs.

In an effort to ease the burden of getting their annual mammogram screening*, Mercy Hospital Fort Scott Imaging Services is offering women special Saturday hours on August 29 from 8 a.m. – noon for scheduled or walk-in mammograms.

A prescription is not necessary if the patient’s physician is Mercy integrated. Insurance will be billed for the mammogram; however diagnostic mammograms are not included during the Save a Life Saturday event.

To schedule your mammogram, you must call 620-223-7015. Walk-in patients may register at Mercy Hospital Fort Scott’s main registration desk the day of the event. Please present a copy of the patient’s insurance card, if applicable.

*If experiencing any breast discomfort or problems, women need to see a physician for an order.  Women should refrain from wearing deodorant or powder the day of the mammogram.
