The OSF HealthCare Holy Family Medical Center Mammography Department is hosting an open house from 5 to 7 p.m. on Wednesday, October 24. Community members are welcome to meet our caring Mission Partners and learn more about the latest breast health issues from our team of registered mammography technologists. Complimentary refreshments will be served and guests can enter to win a gift basket.
Walk-in screening mammography will also be available during the open house. (Please note: A physician’s order is not needed. We will bill your insurance, and a cash-reduced price is available. Note: Radiologist reading fee is billed separately.)
”Mammograms are still the single most effective tool in the early detection of breast cancer and are proven to save lives. When detected early, doctors can begin treatment before symptoms begin, resulting in a better outcome,” said Mary Mowen, R.T. (R)(M), Medical Imaging Director at OSF HealthCare Holy Family Medical Center.
Mowen added, “Here at OSF Holy Family, 3D mammography is also available. This technology has been shown to increase detection of breast cancer by more than 20 percent.”
