Hamilton Memorial Hospital Celebrates New Mammography Service

HAMILTON MEMORIAL HOSPITAL CELBRATES NEW 3D MAMMOGRAPY SERVICE

 

 

(McLeansboro, Illinois) – Hamilton Memorial Hospital hosted an open house on Thursday, April 25th to introduce the new state of the art Hologic 3D mammography service.

 

For the one in eight women that will develop breast cancer within their lifetime and 250,000 women this year alone, this means that the same 3D mammography equipment that is considered the gold standard in breast cancer detection in teaching hospitals and large breast centers across the nation, is now available right here, close to home at Hamilton Memorial Hospital.

 

This 3D mammography technology is clinically proven to detect 20-65% more invasive breast cancers compared to 2D mammography alone. This technology, along with recently welcoming new general surgeon, Dr. Rodney Miller to Hamilton Memorial’s medical staff, will allow greater access to needed surgical care options and to supplement mammography services.

 

“Our mission to provide access to quality healthcare for the communities we serve is alive and well at Hamilton Memorial Hospital”, says Hamilton Memorial CEO, Victoria Woodrow. “We are committed to continuing to fulfill this honorable mission everyday- and this is precisely what we are doing with this state of the art technology. I urge you; to take a second look at Hamilton Memorial Hospital and encourage the ladies you love in your life to schedule a mammogram today!”
