Wayne Memorial Hosts “Girls’ Night Out”

Each Tuesday and Thursday evening in October, Wayne Memorial Hospital will host “Girls’ Night Out” as a part of their Breast Cancer Awareness Month activities. This event’s purpose is to encourage women to get their annual mammograms. During “Girls’ Night Out” women can schedule screening mammograms as late as 7:30 p.m. at Wayne Memorial. The dates of this year’s Girls’ Nights Out are: October 3, 5, 10, 12, 17, 19, 24 and 26.

Attendees will experience the benefits of undergoing a 3D Mammogram as the hospital offers the latest in breast cancer screening advances, Genius(tm) 3D Mammography(tm) exams. “Extended hours offer more women more opportunity and time to get this important screening mammogram completed,” states Director of Radiology John McCullough. “Breast cancer, if caught early, is a very treatable and beatable disease,” adds Becky Phillips, Director of Medical Records and cancer survivor.

Key points to know for Girls’ Night Out include:

* Mammograms must be ordered by a physician. All patients must present physician orders at the appointment before the procedure. Normal insurance/payment procedures apply.

* All participants must have a scheduled appointment. Mammograms need to be scheduled through the WMH Centralized Scheduling Department at (912) 530-3197, (912) 530-3272 or (912) 530-3230 after receiving a physician’s order. Unfortunately, walk-ins cannot be accepted.

* Only screening mammograms will be performed during the event. All mammograms scheduled between the hours of 4 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. in October are for screening purposes only. No prior issues or diagnostic mammograms will be performed during the “Girls’ Night Out” event.
