West Florida Hospitalís Mobile Mammography Unit will be at the following locations during the week of April 22 to offer convenient, high quality mammography services for women age 35 and over. West Florida Hospital files most insurance, including Medicare (Medicare will cover screening mammograms every year with no deductible for those women over 40 who have that coverage).
A customized 37-foot coach containing dedicated mammography equipment, the Mobile Mammography Unit makes getting a mammogram even more convenient. It travels throughout the area bringing quality mammography services to women where they are: at work, club or church meetings, health fairs, West Florida Primary Care offices and other community locations.
The Mobile Mammography Unit provides comprehensive mammography services that feature an all-female staff of nationally-certified and licensed technologists and state-of-the-art equipment, including Digital Mammography and CAD (Computer Aided Detection). For extra assurance, all mammograms are read by two board certified
Radiologists. The Mobile Mammography Unit is also certified by the FDA and accredited by the American College of Radiology.
In addition, West Florida Healthcare was the first facility in the area to be recognized as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence from the American College of Radiology (ACR). By awarding facilities the status of a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence, the ACR recognizes breast imaging centers that have earned accreditation in mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy, and breast ultrasound (including ultrasound-guided breast biopsy). West Florida Healthcare is one of only a few ACR BICOE facilities in the state of Florida.
