Local branches of American Community Bank invited Presbyterian Healthcare’s mobile mammography unit to their parking lots to provide free screening to women over 35. Of the 14 women who received mammograms last Wednesday at the Mint Hill and Indian Trail branches, four of them were screened for the first time. All of the age-eligible ladies at the Mint Hill branch received mammograms.
The healthcare providers in the mobile unit said women reported being less intimidated by the relaxed atmosphere of the screening. The mammograms took about five minutes, and the digital images were downloaded and read at the hospital.
American Community Bank branch manager, Tammy Stack, and chief operating officer Mark DeMarcus supported Presbyterian’s mobile mammography efforts. The bank intends to partner with Presbyterian Healthcare again in the future.
