Have you put off your annual mammogram? Wait no longer. Get your annual screening with the most-advanced breast cancer detection equipment without traveling to a larger city.
Effective Nov. 3, Mercy Hospital Fort Scott introduced 3D mammography.
In an effort to help ladies take advantage of this new, state-of-the-art device, the hospital will host extended hours for mammogram screenings on Wednesday, Nov. 30.
Between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., patients can receive their annual mammogram by either pre-scheduling an appointment or using the walk-in service. Women may also receive a free bone-density scan and giveaways.
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 special extended hours on Nov. 30.
Schedule a mammogram or 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.
The 3D mammography equipment purchase and installation was made possible by a donation from the Mercy Health Foundation Fort Scott.
*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.
