Mobile Mammography Unit to Screen at Multiple Locations in Northwest Ohio: Here’s Where and When

Mercy Health’s Mobile Mammography Unit will bring safe and easy screenings to communities in Northwest Ohio.

TOLEDO, Ohio— Editor’s note: The video report above was broadcast on October 7, 2021.

The region’s first mobile mammography unit will visit several locations over the next few weeks, with Mercy Health releasing its April schedule on Tuesday.

Mercy Health’s mobile mammography unit is customized for patient comfort and will provide 3D mammograms to women 40 and older. It is equipped with the latest 3D technology and offers patients the option of self-compression, which means the patient will have the ability to control the compression on her breast once she is in position.

It will provide safe and easy screenings at convenient locations in several counties in northwest Ohio.

Early diagnosis of breast cancer has proven better outcomes.

Board-certified radiologists read all mammograms and because a second look can mean a second chance, all mammograms are double-checked with a computer-assisted detection system that detects more breast cancer than mammograms alone. You and your doctor receive a copy of the results.

Talk to your doctor about when you should have a screening mammogram. Screening mammograms are usually covered by most insurance companies.

Although mammography screenings may be covered by insurance, for best coverage, please check to see if Mercy Health – St. Charles Hospital is an in-network provider with your insurance company. If you are uninsured or underinsured (you have high deductibles), financial need-based assistance programs are available to help you.

If you qualify, you may qualify for a free mammogram. Call 419-696-5839 for more information.

Screenings at Mercy Health’s Mobile Mammography Unit are by appointment only. Call 833-MAMM-VAN to schedule your mobile unit screening.
