January 30, 2019 – Time, transportation and expense are no longer
obstacles to comprehensive breast care. In early 2018, Southeast Georgia
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 the Health System to provide screening and diagnostic
breast imaging services for uninsured and underserved patients 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 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 the Komen grant and low or no-cost
mammograms for uninsured or low-income persons in Brantley, Camden, Glynn,
Long and McIntosh counties, call 912-466-5235.
