As we get ready to celebrate the sweethearts in our lives, CHI Oakes Hospital is encouraging people to talk to their moms, sisters, daughters, wives and girlfriends about the importance of getting screened for breast cancer. While it may not sound like the traditional Valentine’s Day gift, having a simple conversation could save a life.
CHI Oakes Hospital is offering Valentine’s Day Mammogram promotions this year throughout the month of February. Schedule a screening mammogram utilizing our new 3D in house mammography machine and enjoy special pampering and a gift, along with a chance to win a door prize drawing.
Appointments are required. To schedule your screening mammogram, call 701-742-3619.
One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime, according to the American Cancer Society. Although the causes of breast cancer are still unknown, there are many factors—including advancing age and family history—that may increase someone’s risk for breast cancer.
Appointments are on a first-come, first-served basis. An order from a physician is not required, but the patient must provide a physician/provider name when an appointment is made. If the patient does not have a physician/provider, a list will be provided for the patient’s selection. All mammogram reports will be sent to the physician/provider and follow-ups are the responsibility of the patient.
