TriHealth Women's Services Van to Offer Mammograms in Springfield Township June 28th

The TriHealth Women’s Services Van will be offering mammograms at The Springfield Township Administration/Fire Department (9150 Winton Road, Cincinnati, OH 45231) on Friday, June 28, 2019 between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m.


The TriHealth Women’s Services Van provides screening mammograms to women ages 40 and over. Screening is provided to women ages 35-39 who are considered high risk or have a strong family history.


“Lack of access to facilities is a major barrier to women receiving annual mammograms,” said Nyota Stoker, Mobile Mammography Coordinator for TriHealth. “TriHealth tackles this issue by sending the van out to different communities and provides a convenient, comfortable option for those in our community who have difficulty accessing health care.”


People in Springfield Township appreciate what programs like this mean to the community.


“Early detection is critical. By partnering with TriHealth over the past four years, we have been able to offer our community a service that could be life-saving,” said Gwen McFarlin, Springfield Township Trustee and long-time healthcare professional.


Patients should expect an appointment to take 30 minutes from start to finish. To schedule an appointment, call 513-569-6565 or register online at www.community.trihealthmobile.timetrade.com.


It is the responsibility of the patient to make sure their insurance will cover the testing. Funding may be available to those who are uninsured or underinsured.

Please note: Women who are 35 to 39 years old may want to verify that mammograms are covered by their insurance company if they do not have a physician’s prescription.

Do I need to have my prior images/films from another hospital?

Bringing a copy of your previous digital images on a disc or hard copy films the day of your appointment on the van is helpful in receiving results sooner. Otherwise, we allow up to 10 days for receiving your previous images/films before reviewing your mammogram.

Do I need to have a health care provider in order to have a mammogram on the TriHealth Women’s Services Van?

Yes, when scheduling a mammogram on the van, each patient is required to provide the name of the physician, nurse practitioner or nurse midwife she would like a copy of her report sent to.

What is the cost for a mammogram on the TriHealth Women’s Services Van?
