Since 2001, the bus has logged more than 150,000 miles delivering on-site services to businesses and local communities. Mercy upgraded to 3D mammography, also known as breast tomosynthesis, because it's shown improved breast cancer detection rates and a decrease in call backs, particularly among women with dense breasts. It's now Missouri law that insurance companies must cover 3D mammograms for women ages 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, a service of Mercy Hospital, Springfield, Mo. It's staffed by highly-qualified Mercy health professionals.
