Silver Cross Center for Women’s Health offers Discounted Mammograms and Massages in May
New Lenox, IL (April 25, 2013)—Moms are busy people. They take care of their family, home and community. Because they matter in the lives of so many, the Silver Cross Center for Women’s Health is offering a special gift so that mothers take care of themselves and also enjoy a little relaxation along the way.
During May, the Silver Cross Center for Women’s Health is offering digital screening mammograms for just $100 for those who prefer to pay at time of appointment; otherwise insurance will be billed. Patients can also choose to have a one-hour massage performed by a licensed massage therapist immediately following their appointments for $50. In addition, patients will receive a free I Matter™ reward card for valuable discounts at over 50 local businesses.
To schedule an appointment for a mammogram and massage, call (815) 300-7076 before May 31, 2013 and mention MOM’S MAMMO. A doctor’s order is required for the mammogram. Don’t have a doctor? Call 1-888-660-HEAL or visit www.IMatter.silvercross.org for a free referral.
Advanced Diagnostics, Personal Care
The Silver Cross Center for Women’s Health represents a unique concept in women’s healthcare. Located on the new Silver Cross Hospital campus at I-355 and Route 6 in New Lenox, the Center was the first in the region to provide an advanced level of diagnostics coupled with specialized care for women in one convenient location. Set in a spa-like environment, the Silver Cross Center for Women’s Health offers a variety of healthcare services designed around a woman’s needs and lifestyle including mammography, breast ultrasound and biopsy, bone densitometry, heart screenings, and a breast cancer support group.
The Center’s crown jewel is full field digital mammography—the latest breast cancer testing available.
“At the Center, we use only digital mammography technology to provide our patients with the best service and care,” says Marci Vasiliades, Manager of the Silver Cross Center for Women’s Health. “Patients can bring their old films in and we will scan and transfer them to the digital format for easy comparison.”
Digital mammograms also simplify the procedure for women. Although compression of the breasts is still important when performing digital mammography, the compression paddles are warmer and more flexible, which ultimately provide women with a more comfortable experience. Following the screening, women can call a 24-hour mammogram hotline to obtain their test results alleviating any anxiety.
Designated as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology (ACR), the Center for Women’s Health is uniquely staffed with a Certified Breast Care Nurse (CBCN™).
“By having a Certified Breast Care Nurse working at the Center, we are able to offer our patients even more specialized and personalized care,” said Vasiliades. “This specialized nurse guides our patients through the next steps in their care.”
