November 2, 2018 – 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.
In March 2018, the Health System’s commitment to fighting breast
cancer was recognized with a generous $50,000 grant from Coastal Georgia
Affiliate of Susan G. Komen. The grant helps to provide screening and
diagnostic breast imaging services for uninsured and low-income patients.

The Health System began its mobile mammography in 2006 with the custom
designed WOW, a completely self-contained mobile health vehicle that features
the same advanced digital mammography equipment found at the Health System’s
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 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.
Please note that all mammograms require a physician’s order; most
insurances are accepted and financial assistance is available to patients
who qualify. For more information about low or no-cost mammograms for
uninsured or low-income persons in Brantley, Camden, Glynn, Long and McIntosh
counties, call 912-466-5235
