In observance of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Guthrie hospitals will offer screening mammogram appointments on all four Saturdays in October in order to make it more convenient for women to receive this important screening.
Saturday appointments are available on Oct. 5, 12, 19 and 26 at Guthrie Corning Hospital, Guthrie Towanda Memorial Hospital, Guthrie Troy Community Hospital, Guthrie Cortland Medical Center and Guthrie Robert Packer Hospital.
The Guthrie Breast Imaging Center recommends yearly mammograms for women age 40 and older. Beginning regular mammograms at age 40 creates the best chance for early diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. For an appointment, call 866-Guthrie or 607-756-3795 for Guthrie Cortland Medical Center.
