Mobile Health Vehicle
The Southeast Georgia Health System Wellness on Wheels (WOW) mobile health
vehicle provides low-cost and free health screenings, first aid and preventative
education to the community at health departments, industries and businesses,
health fairs, churches and community events.
Services available on the WOW include bone density screenings, blood pressure
checks, lab draws, flu shots, health education and more.
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 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
In 2017, 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 underserved patients.
Digital mammograms are provided at specific events. Please note that all
mammograms require a physician’s order; insurance is accepted and
financial assistance is available to patients who qualify.
For more information about low or no-cost mammograms for uninsured or underinsured
persons in Brantley, Camden, Glynn, Long and McIntosh counties, call 912-466-5235.
If you would like to schedule the WOW mobile health vehicle for your not-for-profit
event or to provide screenings to employees at your place of business,
please call the Southeast Georgia Health System Health Promotion &
Wellness department at 912-466-5160.

You’re probably well aware of the statistics: About one in every
eight women will face a diagnosis of breast cancer in her lifetime. And
you probably also know that mammograms are the best way to detect breast
cancer in its earliest stages, when it’s most treatable. However,
even knowing these facts, there are some women who don’t —
or can’t — get routine breast care.
Foundation Improves Access to Care with New Wellness On Wheels
Healthy Partners, Summer 2020
Somehow, between getting her children off to school and getting ready for
work, a single mother discovers a lump in her breast. She can’t
afford the time off work to drive from her rural home to the hospital.
Even worse, she does not have health insurance. What can she do? Her situation
is not unique. For many living in Brantley, Camden, Charlton, Glynn, Long
and McIntosh counties, there’s simply not the money, time or transportation
to reach health care services. For these underserved individuals, hope
comes in the form of a mobile health vehicle.
