March 26, 2015 – Southeast Georgia Health System is pleased to provide
access to quality mammography in Glynn County and rural areas of Southeast
Georgia with its Wellness on Wheels (WOW) mobile health vehicle.
The Health System began its mobile mammography in 2006 with the custom
designed WOW, a completely self-contained mobile health vehicle that only
requires space in a parking lot. The WOW features the same advanced digital
mammography equipment found at the Health System Breast Care Center. It
is staffed by female mammography technologists specially 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.
The WOW is accredited by the American College of Radiology and certified
by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
In 2015, the Health System’s commitment to fighting breast cancer
was recognized with a generous $60,000 grant from Coastal Georgia Affiliate
of Susan G. Komen. The grant helps to provide screening and diagnostic
breast imaging services for uninsured and underserved patients.
The WOW will provide mammograms at the following locations during the
month of April. Please note that all mammograms require a physician’s
order; insurance is accepted and financial assistance is available to
patients who qualify.
