Sutter Davis Imaging will offer free digital screening mammograms to women who lack health insurance between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 19, at 2020 Sutter Place, Suite 102.
To qualify, women must be uninsured, 40 years or older and call 530-747-5030 in advance. Space is limited.
Women will receive their results from Sutter Davis Imaging within several days after their visit. Sutter Davis Imaging will 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 in Fairfield, Jackson and Vallejo in 2012.
Sutter gave 358 uninsured women free digital screening mammograms last year.
