Expanded hours for mammograms

We know you are busy and sometimes just can’t get to the hospital for an appointment during your work day. That’s why Island Hospital has extended hours for mammography appointments – Tuesday and Thursday evenings until 8 p.m. and Saturdays, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

One in eight women will develop breast cancer in their lifetime and mammograms are the most effective method for early detection. Island Hospital recommends women age 40 and older should begin annual mammograms and our Diagnostic Imaging Department offers the latest 3D technology.
