Self – Referral Mammogram Program

NFCH is now providing a new,  self referral mammogram program.   We are proud to be designated as a Pink Ribbon Facility. In this program a Registered Nurse conducts a clinical breast exam and she provides in-depth education on self breast exams.  A female Radiology Technician performs the mammography screening  .  Did you know that breast cancer, when detected early, has nearly a 100% survival rate?  Did you know that mammography screening is the best way to detect breast cancer in its earlier stages and saves lives?  We are also offering women a softer mammogram.  Yes, that’s right.  We have gone soft on mammography.  Each woman will receive her very own MammoPad soft cushion.  This makes the mammogram much more comfortable, and warmer.   Get your screening mammogram today at Northwest Florida Community Hospital.  You can refer yourself without a doctor’s order by calling 415-8111.  Do it for you and everyone that loves you.
