BENNINGTON, VT—For patient convenience and in observation of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which happens each October, Southwestern Vermont Medical Center (SVMC) will offer screening mammograms 8 a.m. – noon on Saturday, October 20 at SVMC Women’s Imaging Center, suite 206 of the Medical Office Building located at 140 Hospital Drive in Bennington.
The Women’s Imaging team welcomes any woman with a referral from her primary care physician or OB/GYN and would like to especially invite women who have never had a mammogram before. Women who are over 40 years old are encouraged to attend. Once patients have obtained a referral, they should call 802-447-5541 ext. 2 to schedule.
Anyone needing financial assistance, those who are uninsured or who have prohibitively high deductibles, may apply for funding though a Komen for the Cure VT-NH grant. For more information, call 802-440-4244.
