$50 Mammograms Offered for Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October

Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center (PVHMC) will offer $50 screening mammograms without need for physician order or proof of insurance during Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October.

Breast cancer is the second most common cancer in women, after skin cancers. Annual screening mammograms are critical to early detection and diagnosis, which can lead to more treatment options and successful health outcomes.

“Early detection of breast cancer saves lives,” says Dr. Paul Reisch, director of breast imaging at Pomona Valley Hospital Medical Center. “By offering these low-cost mammograms, we’re hoping to reduce any financial barriers that may be preventing women in our community from getting the care they need.”

Women who are eligible for the $50 mammograms in October include:

  • Women over 40 who haven't had a mammogram in the past year
  • Women without breast implants
  • Women who do not have a history of breast cancer in the past five years
  • Women who are not currently experiencing breast problems

While many breast care centers only offer 3D mammography to women with dense breast tissue, PVHMC was one of the first in the region to offer digital 3D mammography to all of its patients, regardless of their income or insurance coverage. PVHMC is also one of the only hospitals in the region to offer the SmartCurve™ breast stabilization system, which is clinically proven to deliver a more comfortable mammogram without compromising image quality, workflow or dose.

To schedule a $50 3D mammography appointment in October at the Breast Health Center, located within The Robert & Beverly Lewis Family Cancer Care Center in Pomona, or at the Pomona Valley Health Centers in Claremont, Chino Hills or La Verne, call PVHMC’s scheduling line at (909) 469-9395 or visit:
