St. Luke’s Mobile Mammography Unit
February 12, 2021 @ 7:00 am - 12:00 pm
The St. Luke’s Mobile Mammography Unit will be at Staenberg Family Complex in Creve Coeur on Friday, February 12 from 8am–1:30pm. This service provides 3D screening mammograms for women 40 years of age and older.
Early detection is key in helping reduce the number of deaths related to breast cancer, and nobody should let the pandemic stop them from making their health care a priority. That is especially true if you are due for a mammogram. Although one may think delaying a screening for a month or two is not a big deal, the National Cancer Institute estimates that delayed diagnosis due to the pandemic could result in 10,000 additional deaths from breast and colorectal cancers in the next 10 years.
St. Luke’s is taking the necessary steps to protect patients and is adhering to all safety protocols. Appointments are arranged to accommodate appropriate distancing and ensure there is no patient crossover. All appointments must be scheduled; they will not accommodate walk-ins.
The fee for the screening will be billed to you or your insurance. St. Luke’s will submit claims for you to participating insurance companies and Medicare. Women who are uninsured or underinsured may be eligible for free mammograms. No physician order is required.
Schedule your appointment by calling 314.305.6267.
