October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Valley Health Offers Prevention & Treatment
Early Detection Saves Lives
Communities across Virginia and West Virginia can take advantage of state-of-the-art
technology and knowledgeable staff at Valley Health imaging centers and
outpatient diagnostic centers. Whether you are looking to schedule a routine
mammogram or go in for a diagnostic ultrasound, our experienced staff
can provide you with the services you need.
Valley Health is proud to offer the latest technology in breast imaging,
including 3D Mammography, Breast Ultrasound, Breast MRI and Molecular
Breast Imaging (BSGI). Ask your provider if any of these services are
right for you. If your desired scan or test is not available at the location
closest to you, we can get you in touch with another one of our locations
that offers the service.
For the month of October, all six Valley Health hospital imaging locations
are offering $99 mammograms for those who are uninsured.
Valley Health Breast Center
The new, free-standing Valley Health Cancer Center has a dedicated Breast
Center, which houses a comprehensive program for our patients.
Women receiving cancer care will have access to a breast health navigator
who provides personalized support, information and resources. The Breast
Center is also conveniently located 100 steps away from the Winchester
Medical Center Diagnostic Center. This means you are only 100 steps away
from mammograms to results!
