Can't remember the last time you had a mammogram?

Can't remember the last time you had a mammogram?

Renown can help you stay up-to-date on your breast health. An annual mammogram is the most efficient screening method to detect early breast cancer and a vital step in taking care of yourself. Do not delay a mammogram because of the cost. 

We understand scheduling your yearly exam may be a financial strain, that's why Renown Regional Medical Center, in collaboration with Susan G. Komen Nevada, may be able to assist you with paying your mammogram. If you, or anyone you know, may benefit from our uninsured (or under insured) program please reach out to us. 

Transportation services are also available upon request.
