Our hectic lives are so packed with work, school, chores and other responsibilities that sometimes it’s difficult to add another thing to the schedule. But getting your annual mammogram simply can’t be brushed aside.
In an effort to accommodate a busy schedule, Mercy Hospital will host special Saturday hours for mammogram screenings on June 11.
From 7 a.m. to noon, patients can receive their annual mammogram by either pre-scheduling an appointment or use walk-in service the day of the Save a Life Saturday event.
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 a mammogram, call 620-223-7015. Walk-in patients may register at Mercy Hospital Fort Scott’s main registration desk. 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.
