That's why we are pleased to offer women in the Louisville area 13 convenient locations – including one mobile location – for digital mammography screening including: • Jewish Hospital • Sts. Mary & Elizabeth Hospital • James Graham Brown Cancer Center • Flaget Memorial Hospital • Jewish Hospital Shelbyville • Medical Center Jewish East • Medical Center Jewish South • Medical Center Jewish Southwest • Louisville OB/GYN • Louisville Physicians for Women • Partners in Women's Health • Total Woman • James Graham Brown Cancer Center Mobile Mammography Unit KentuckyOne Health provides faster, easier and more specialized breast care than ever before, highlighted by: • Fast-track results • Convenient scheduling, if additional tests are needed • Results read by board-certifed radiologists, with expertise in breast care and accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR) • Complimentary radiology consultation for diagnostic mammograms at most locations If further testing or diagnostic procedures are needed, patients have access to the Louisville area's most qualifed facilities for breast health. The James Graham Brown Cancer Center is the frst facility in Kentucky with National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC) accreditation. James Graham Brown Cancer Center and Medical Center Jewish East have received American College of Radiology (ACR) accreditation for breast MRI, mammography, ultrasound and sterotactic breast biopsy. They both have Breast Imaging Center of Excellence (BICOE) designation. Additionally, University of Louisville Hospital's James Graham Brown Cancer Center is the "best in Cancer Care in Louisville," according to the 2014-2015 U.S. News and World Report. All other Louisville-area KentuckyOne Health breast health facilities have ACR accreditation in mammography as well. A screening mammogram is the best way to detect breast cancer early, allowing more time for successful treatment options. Women over the age of 40 (or younger with a family history of breast cancer,) should have a mammogram every year, and most insurance plans cover the screening in its entirety as a proactive well-care procedure. If you haven't had a screening mammogram lately, today is a good day to schedule yours. Just call 587-4327 and ask to schedule your mammogram at the facility most convenient to where you live or work. Take advantage of the expertise and expanded access that KentuckyOne Health offers patients in the Louisville area. By working together, we are improving the lives in Kentucky. KentuckyOne Health, the one name in Cancer Care
