Free, Discounted Mammograms Available At Citrus Hospital Special Rates Available During October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month

CITRUS COUNTY, FL. – Citrus Memorial Hospital announced today that it will once again offer both free and discounted 3D mammograms to uninsured patients in October at its Breast Imaging Center of Excellence in Inverness.

Free – As part of a partnership with the Citrus County Professional Firefighters Local 4562, the first 33 uninsured women to schedule a screening mammogram for October will receive their 3D mammogram free of charge. These mammograms are funded by the fire union’s annual Breast Cancer Awareness Month fundraiser.

Discounted – Once the complimentary mammograms are scheduled, uninsured patients will be offered $60 3D mammograms through the month of October.

“Early detection is one of the most important strategies to prevent death from breast cancer,” said Citrus Memorial Hospital Director of Diagnostic Imaging Rocco Cirocco. “Our goal remains to ensure our community members have access to the latest technology so we can make that quick diagnosis.”

Annual mammograms are recommended beginning at age 40 for average-risk patients or earlier based on risk factors.

Screening mammograms can be scheduled by calling (877) 351-7012. The Citrus Memorial Breast Imaging Center of Excellence is located at 131 S. Citrus Ave, Inverness.
