Freeport, Illinois — May 9, 2017 — FHN’s Walk-In Wednesdays, a day set aside for no-appointment mammograms at the FHN Women’s Diagnostic Center, has been so popular it’s been expanded through Thursdays, too.
Beginning May 11, no-appointment mammograms will be available from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Wednesdays and from noon to 6 p.m. on Thursdays each week. Simply walk in to FHN Memorial Hospital in Freeport, register at admitting, and head back to the Imaging department on the main floor for an all-digital mammogram. No phone calls, no scheduling, no hassle – and no excuse not to get this very important screening done!
FHN is even doing away with one of the little impositions that are a part of a yearly mammogram: Still please don’t wear deodorant or antiperspirant when you’re getting your mammogram, but personal-sized one-use packets will be available for use at the conclusion of the screening.
Individuals don’t have to be an FHN patient to take advantage of Walk-In Wednesdays and Thursdays, and most health insurance policies cover a yearly mammogram for women over age 50. For more information on preventative care and the FHN Women’s Diagnostic Center, visit www.fhn.org.
