The mobile bus allows Mercy to serve more women, including those whose last mammogram was digital and those with breast implants. Annual screening mammograms are recommended for women age 40 and older. Mammograms are the best tool for detecting breast cancer in its earliest, most treatable stage. Nearly 3,000 women annually complete a mammogram on the bus. Many have never had a mammogram or have gone many years between screenings.

Mercy Wellness on Tour mobile bus is an outreach of the Mercy Breast Center, staffed by highly-qualified Mercy health professionals.
