Arroyo Grande Provides Free Mammograms
This special program is funded by the Arroyo Grande Community Hospital Foundation (AGCH Foundation) with major support provided to the AGCH Foundation by the Cypress Ridge Women’s Golf-Rally for Hope Tournament.
“Arroyo Grande Community Hospital is proud to offer this opportunity in order to increase awareness and to educate women about the importance of regular mammogram screenings, clinical breast exams and early detection of breast cancer at its earliest and most treatable stages,” explains Montisa Lopez, Vice President of the AGCH Foundation. “This mammogram screening opportunity is one of the many hospital outreach programs and is made possible by the generosity of the Cypress Ridge Women’s Golf Club and AGCH’s collaborative partnership with The Center.”
The screening clinic provides women who have limited resources with an annual mammography screening exam. Women interested in receiving a free mammogram must make an appointment for a clinical breast exam by calling The Center at (805) 489-4026. At the time of the exam, women will receive a referral for a free screening mammogram at AGCH’s Coastal Diagnostic Center.
