Piedmont Medical Center-Rock Hill Offering Extended Mammography Hours During Breast Cancer Awareness MonthOct 4, 2023
To make it easier for area women to get their yearly mammograms during Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Piedmont Medical Center-Rock Hill is offering extended hours on Mondays throughout the month of October at The Women’s Diagnostic Center, 218 S. Herlong Ave., Rock Hill, SC 29732. Patients can make an appointment until 6 p.m. on Mondays. To schedule an appointment, please call 803-329-6878.
Gina Carey, Director of Radiology at Piedmont Rock Hill, encourages women to get mammograms on a regular basis. “Screening for breast cancer through mammography is the best way to detect breast cancer early, before any symptoms or warning signs appear and when the long-term survival chances are greatest.”
“Women are often the caregivers in the family, and we want to help them prioritize their own health by offering them an easy, convenient option for getting a mammogram,” said Teresa Urquhart, Market CEO for Piedmont Medical Center.
According to the Susan G. Komen Foundation, mammography is the most effective screening test used today to find breast cancer in most women. Screening mammograms can find breast cancer early, sometimes up to 10 years before it could be otherwise detected.
