Free Mammography Day in Roseville Helps Uninsured Women
Sutter Diagnostic and Women's Imaging, Roseville, located at 2 Medical Plaza on the Sutter Roseville Medical Center campus, gave uninsured women the opportunity to receive free digital screening mammograms on Oct. 6 in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
More than 80 women were seen during the free screening sessions. A nurse navigator was also on hand to help answer questions about breast health and breast self-exams.
Women will receive their results from Sutter Diagnostic Imaging within several days after their visit. Sutter Diagnostic Imaging will work to connect women who have an abnormal result to local not-for-profit agencies with which Sutter regularly partners so patients may take next steps and receive follow-up care.
Sutter's Free Mammography Day was spearheaded at Sutter Auburn Faith Hospital in 2009, where in two years' time about 70 uninsured women were given free mammograms. Inspired by the feedback and success of the program, Sutter Diagnostic Imaging expanded it to its other locations in Davis, Elk Grove, Roseville and Sacramento in 2011, and in Fairfield, Jackson and Vallejo in 2012. Sutter Health's diagnostic imaging centers across the Sacramento region are dedicating every Saturday in October to offer free digital screening mammograms to women more than 40 years of age. Each of the sites quickly booked up as soon as the service was announced.
Comprehensive, fully integrated imaging services are part of the Sutter Health all-inclusive approach to patient care. For more information about Sutter Diagnostic Imaging centers, call 877-515-0053 or visit www.checksutterfirst.org/imaging.
