Schedule your mammogram during breast cancer awareness month

(Services, Events) Permanent link

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and Portage Health is hoping women across the Copper Country will take the time to have a mammogram this month. All patients who schedule a mammogram appointment during the month of October will receive a free gift from the hospital.

Although many great strides have been made in breast cancer awareness and treatment, there remains much to be accomplished. Portage Health is dedicated to educating and empowering women to take charge of their own breast health.

Portage Health offers a complete women’s health team of physicians, digital mammography, a compassionate, full-time cancer care team and a state-of-the-art cancer care center right here in Hancock.

Patients can schedule an appointment to see a physician for a breast exam and mammogram by calling the Portage Health Women’s Health Team at (906) 483-1050, or by contacting their family practice physician.
