Mobile mammography van visits area locations

The Mercy Health mobile mammography unit delivers 3D mammograms to women age 40 and older. It is equipped with the newest 3D technology and offers patients the option of self-compression, meaning the patient will have the ability to control the compression once they are in position.

Area visits:

Thursday and Dec. 15, Mercy Health – Perrysburg Primary Care & Walk-in, 1103 Village Square

Dec. 16, Mercy Health – Waterville Primary Care, 1222 Pray Boulevard

Dec. 21 and 28, Starbright Primary Care, 28555 Starbright Blvd., Perrysburg

While mammogram screenings may be covered by insurance, for best coverage, verify if Mercy Health – St. Charles Hospital is an in-network provider. For those who are uninsured or underinsured (have high deductibles), there are financial need-based assistance programs available. If eligible, some may qualify for a no-cost mammogram. Call 419-696-5839 for more information.

Screenings at the Mercy Health Mobile Mammography unit are by appointment only; call 833-MAMM- VAN to schedule.
