St. Alexius Extends Hours for Mammograms

In recognition of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, St. Alexius’ Radiology Services is extending its hours of operation for mammogram patients. During October and November, patients can schedule their mammogram appointments every Wednesday until 6 p.m. Appointments can still be made during regular hours of 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday thru Friday by calling 530-5550.

St. Alexius has invested in the latest digital mammography equipment and additional imaging systems to help in the fight against breast cancer. The center offers a comprehensive range of services in a private, warm and spa-like area.

The American Cancer Society recommends women age 40 and older have an annual screening mammogram.  Early detection is key.  One out of eight women will develop breast cancer.  Fortunately, the death rates have declined significantly.
