Mobile mammo unit on the road to reaching patients in rural areas

Breast Cancer Awareness

Many women living in rural areas don’t always have easy access to locations that offer mammography screenings. So, Adventist Health is teaming up with Susan G. Komen and Life Saving Images to bring a mobile mammo unit to nearly a dozen Adventist Health medical offices.

“We are beyond happy to partner with Life Saving Images to give the women of our communities convenient, preventative care close to home, in hopes of saving lives,” says Jessica Rodriguez, administrative director for Adventist Health medical offices in the Central Valley. 

Patients may make appointments by calling any one of the Adventist Health medical offices where the mobile mammo unit will be parked. Walk-ins are welcome. Referrals are not necessary, but patients may certainly be referred by a primary care physician who will then receive the results, conduct additional testing and notify patients where to go for treatment.

The screening is covered by insurance, but patients must meet the recommended age to qualify. State programs also are available.

Only one patient is allowed in the mobile unit at one time. The screening takes about 10 minutes and includes registration. The unit is staffed by technicians with Life Saving Services.

The mobile mammo unit is available from 9 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. and will rotate between the below locations:
