Healthcare That Comes to You!

Mobile Wellness, Saint Francis’s 45′ mobile healthcare coach, houses a state-of-the-art 3D mammography unit as its primary service offering. Mobile Wellness will travel the region 45-50 weeks of the year, removing barriers to care and ensuring residents across southeast Missouri have access to life-saving preventative breast cancer screenings, as well as other necessary healthcare services. See below for upcoming dates and locations.

Need for Service

Breast cancer is one of the top four cancers affecting our region. One in eight women may be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime.

1 in 8 women may be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime

The 2022 Community Health Needs Assessment conducted by Saint Francis for Cape Girardeau, Stoddard, Butler and Scott counties identified “Cancer” and “Preventative and Screening Services” as two of the top priorities to address. Additionally, the assessment found poverty, transportation and healthcare availability and accessibility are deterrents to receiving screenings and needed healthcare.

Mobile Wellness will address these priorities by bringing needed services to our patients in their home communities.

Mammography

Screening mammography is the best preventative tool for detecting breast cancer in its earliest and most treatable stages. A yearly screening mammogram beginning by age 45 for those women with average risk is the best prevention for breast cancer. Detecting breast cancer early, and receiving high-quality, patient-centered treatment, are two of the most important strategies for reducing mortality from breast cancer.

The 3D mammography unit on Mobile Wellness offers patients the most state-of-the-art equipment for the detection of breast cancer.

Other Services

In addition to mammography, Mobile Wellness plans to offer other preventative screenings and wellness services as needed.

Upcoming Dates and Locations

Preventative screenings are covered by insurance, including Medicaid. Patients without insurance may qualify for a free screening through Dig for Life and the Saint Francis Foundation.
