Sutter Diagnostic Imaging, Amador Hosts Free Mammography Day, Helps 29 Uninsured Women



Sutter Diagnostic Imaging, Amador, located at 100 Mission Blvd. on the Sutter Amador Hospital campus, gave uninsured women the opportunity to receive free digital screening mammograms on Oct. 26 in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Twenty-nine women were seen during this free screening session.

Women will receive their results from Sutter within several days after their visit. Sutter will work to connect women who have an abnormal result to local not-for-profit agencies with which Sutter regularly partners so patients may take next steps and receive follow-up care.

Sutter’s Free Mammography Day was spearheaded at Sutter Auburn Faith Hospital in 2009, where in two years’ time about 70 uninsured women were given free mammograms. Inspired by the feedback and success of the program, Sutter Diagnostic Imaging expanded it to its other locations in Davis, Elk Grove, Roseville and Sacramento in 2011, and even farther to Fairfield, Jackson and Vallejo in 2012. Sutter Health’s diagnostic imaging centers across the Sacramento region are dedicating every Saturday in October to offer free digital screening mammograms to uninsured women more than 40 years of age. Each of the sites quickly booked up as soon as the service was announced. Sutter gave a total of 388 women free digital screening mammograms during this year’s event, which took place at eight Sutter locations across the region.

Comprehensive, fully integrated imaging services are part of the Sutter Health all-inclusive approach to patient care. For more information about Sutter Diagnostic Imaging centers, call 1-877-515-0053 or visit www.checksutterfirst.org/imaging.
