July 19, 2019 – Time, transportation and expense are no longer obstacles
to obtaining comprehensive breast care. The Southeast Georgia Health System
Wellness on Wheels (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, travels to rural locations in Brantley, Camden, Glynn, Long and McIntosh
counties to offer breast imaging services.
The WOW 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.
Most insurances are accepted and financial assistance is available to
patients who qualify.
In March 2019, 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 the Health System provide
screening and diagnostic breast imaging services for uninsured and underserved
patients in Glynn County and rural areas of Southeast Georgia. For more
information about the Komen grant and low or no-cost mammograms for uninsured
or low-income persons, please call 912-466-5235.
The WOW will provide mammograms at the following locations during the month
of August. Please note that all mammograms require a physician’s order.
