Submitted story



Do something special for yourself – and for everyone who loves you — and schedule your annual mammogram today! It’s easy with Community Mercy Health Partners’ Mobile Mammography program, which provides screening at multiple locations in Champaign and Clark counties each month.

The American Cancer Society recommends that women have a mammogram every year starting at age 40. No doctor order needed for screening. Mammograms are covered by most health insurance plans. Check with your insurance provider for exact coverage. No-cost screenings are available for those who qualify. When you register, ask about our financial assistance options. Walk-ins are welcome but not guaranteed. Be sure to bring a photo ID and insurance card with you. Appointments are approximately 15 minutes when you pre-register.

The following convenient community locations are scheduled in February. To register or for more information about these dates or availability at Springfield Regional Medical Center, call 937-523-9332 from 8 a.m. – 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.
