MetroHealth Expands Mobile 3D Mammography Coach to Discount Drug Mart Stores
This summer, The MetroHealth System’s Mobile 3D Mammography Unit will be making stops at various Discount Drug Mart locations to expand care to more women in our communities.
Throughout July and August, MetroHealth will offer screenings with a trained Registered Mammography Technologist at Discount Drug Marts in Independence, Mentor, Brunswick Hills, Lakewood, Highland Heights and Strongsville.
“MetroHealth’s Mobile Mammography unit will be out this summer providing women the preventive care they need in a safe, hassle-free environment,” said MetroHealth President and CEO Akram Boutros, MD, FACHE. “One of my biggest concerns related to COVID-19 is people putting off the screenings and care they need, and this is a way for us to partner with others, go into the community and serve our neighbors.”
In 15 minutes or less, patients can receive a state-of-the-art 3D mammogram from the mobile coach, which brings the same technology used at all MetroHealth Breast Imaging Sites to convenient locations in your community.
Each mobile unit has two private changing rooms, a skilled staff and timely results provided to the patient and primary care provider.
“We are always looking for more opportunities to better assist our customers and the communities we are a part of especially in terms of the health and well-being of our customers,” said Buddy Graf, Vice President of Business Development at Discount Drug Mart.
