Breast Care Express Brings Mammography to Women in Need
The Mobile Mammography Program is dedicated to bringing high-quality mammography services to women throughout Western Washington, primarily those in underserved and hard-to-reach areas. The program includes two Breast Care Express coaches which deliver experienced technologists and mammography equipment to locations convenient for women - places in their community or at their workplace.
In 2012, the Swedish Mobile Mammography Program provided mammograms to 6,660 women. To reach women who need these vital - and often life-saving - breast-health services, Swedish joins with important community partners such as International Community Health Services ,the YWCA, Center for Multicultural Health, Senior Services of Seattle/King County, the Rainier Park Community Clinic and North Seattle Public Health Center. Swedish also works closely with Planned Parenthood of Clallam County.
