Covenant Mobile Mammography Unit Benefits Residents in Surrounding Counties

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - October is national Breast Cancer Awareness Month. According to the American Cancer Society, one in eight women in the United States will develop breast cancer during her lifetime. Helping to raise awareness of the importance of breast health, Lindsey Kennelly, R.N., manager of the Covenant Joe Arrington Comprehensive Breast Center, discusses the Covenant Mobile Mammography program in the press release below.

  • Mobile mammography is one of Covenant Health System's community outreach programs. It began in the 1980s and was the vision of Sister Katherine, one of the original sisters of St. Mary of the Plain's Hospital which is now Covenant Women's and Children's.
  • Mobile Mammography provides mammography screenings to women ages 40 and older. The screenings are interpreted by radiologists. If an abnormality is found, the mobile unit refers patients to Covenant Joe Arrington for diagnostic testing.
  • The mobile unit is staffed by two registered female X-ray technologists. The unit goes to a different location every day within a 100-mile radius of Lubbock. The next closest mobile mammography program is located in Amarillo.
  • In 2009, the mobile mammography unit performed 16,041 screenings for women in 18 surrounding counties.
  • All insurance is accepted at the mobile mammography unit, including Medicare and Medicaid. The program also partners with the Susan G. Komen foundation in Lubbock to provide financial assistance for women who need it.
  • The program is an important part of the Covenant mission.
  • For the mobile mammography schedule and to make an appointment, call the mobile mammography office at: 725-6579 or 1-800-388-6266. Patients must make an appointment to have a mammogram.

Being aware of your breast health, Kennelly says, is essential to detecting breast cancer in its early stages. Mobile mammography provides a convenient outlet for women outside of Lubbock to receive mammography screenings.
