HSHS Sacred Heart and St. Joseph’s Hospitals rolled out the future in its fight against breast cancer.
A version of their upcoming mobile mammography bus was at Cardinal Glass in Menomonie.
Earlier this month, the HSHS hospitals, along with Prevea Health, received a donation for a new bus.
It’s scheduled to begin operations next year but, this similar life-saving bus was out to give people a chance to see what it will be like.
“We know that 75 percent of women within our service area typically don’t get their annual mammograms for many reasons. A lot of that is scheduling conflicts, time away from work, various reasons like that. So, our goal is to bring easier access to mammography to them,” said Jackie Bachmieier, HSHS Scared Heart Philanthropy specialist
On Tuesday, the version of the mobile mammography bus was also in Chippewa Falls and Rice Lake.
It is scheduled to make stops in Mondovi and Arcadia today (Wednesday).
