Early detection is a gift you give yourself

by | Oct 4, 2019

Each year thousands of women survive breast cancer. That’s thanks in part to an increasing number of women having mammograms. It’s your best means of early detection. If you’re a woman 40 years of age or older, you should have a mammogram every year.

SageWest Health Care offers digital mammography in the fight against breast cancer and the radiologists are specially trained to provide mammography readings. Both SageWest facilities are MQSA (Mammography Quality Standards Act) Certified. That’s two of the 27 that are in the entire state of Wyoming!

Throughout October celebrating National Breast Cancer Awareness, SageWest is offering extended hours in October, every Tuesday and Thursday from 7:30am to 5:30pm at both Riverton and Lander campuses. Get your mammo!

For scheduling please call Riverton at 857-3462 and Lander at 335-6250.

SageWest and the Wyoming Cancer Resource Services partners with Wyoming Breast and Cervical Program and Wyoming Breast Cancer Initiative to assist all women with getting their mammograms. By raising awareness about breast cancer and breast cancer screenings, communities, organizations, and health professionals can work together to keep women healthy.

To learn more about mammograms and breast cancer screening, contact the Wyoming Cancer Program at 1-800-264-1296health.wyo.gov/cancer or your local Wyoming Cancer Resource Services coordinator, Val Walsh-Haines at 307-578-2702 or vwalsh-haines@codyregionalhealth.
