HSHS Sacred Heart and St. Joseph’s hospitals to hold special evening mammograms


HSHS Sacred Heart and St. Joseph’s hospitals know that in general, women tackle many things throughout the course of their day – balancing the needs of their families with the pressures of work while putting their own needs on the backburner.

To help local women take care of themselves while managing their busy schedules, on October 11 and 19, Sacred Heart Hospital will be offering evening mammogram appointments as late at 8 p.m. On November 7, St. Joseph’s Hospital will be offering the same. Call 715-717-1461 to make an appointment to schedule your mammogram.

“Breast cancer, if caught early, is easily treatable,” said Georgia Smith, executive director of cancer care services at Sacred Heart Hospital. “At this time, mammography is our best tool for early detection, so getting your annual mammogram could save your life.”

Bone density exams will also be available on those dates, with physician referral. Refreshments, chair massages and onsite resources will also be available.
