Francine’s Friends Mobile Mammography Coach at Wellness Pavilion
Francine’s Friends Mobile Mammography Coach is scheduled to be at the Arthur & Gloria Muselman Wellness Pavilion on Saturday, September 26 from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. The 40 foot long motor coach is designed to provide mammography screenings. Radiologic technologists from the Breast Diagnostic Center (BDC) staff the coach, which is furnished with the same equipment as the two stationary sites of the BDC. These devices are FDA-approved and Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA) approved. A mammogram takes approximately 15 minutes. Board certified breast-imaging radiologists from FW Radiology interpret the exams. Screenings through this mobile service are for women who are age 35 and older, have not had a mammogram in the past 12 months, have had no prior or current history of breast cancer or problems with their breasts, and are insured or uninsured. To schedule a mammogram, call 260.483.1847 or 1-800-727-8439, ext. 26540. Appointments are preferred, but walk-ins are welcome depending on schedule. For women who are insured, the BDC will bill the insurance company. If a patient does not have insurance but has the ability to pay, the BDC offers a reduced rate if paid the day of the screening. For women without insurance, a high deductible, or resources to pay, funding is available. The Mobile Mammography Coach will be located at the Arthur & Gloria Muselman Wellness Pavilion, at 1201 Emmental Drive in Berne, a service and outreach of Swiss Village, Inc.
