The Health System began its WOW in 2006 with the mobile health vehicle that only requires space in a parking lot. It features the same digital mammography equipment found at the Health System Breast Care Center. It is staffed by female mammography technologists trained to perform breast imaging, and all mobile unit mammograms are read by the same group of board certified radiologists who review Breast Care Center mammograms.
Mammograms require a physician’s order; insurance is accepted and financial assistance is available to patients who qualify.
For more information about low or no-cost mammograms for uninsured or underinsured persons in Long and McIntosh counties, call 912-466-5234.
