No-Cost mammogram screenings offered by Sonoma Valley Hospital in October

Posted on October 20, 2021 by Sonoma Valley Sun

Sonoma Valley Hospital offers no-cost mammogram screenings for uninsured and insured Sonoma Valley women over the age of 40 during October.

The annual ‘Project Pink’ program is open for women who:

  • Are 40 years or older 
  • Have not had a mammogram within the past 12 months
  • Live or work in Sonoma Valley
  • Have difficulty affording a mammogram because they are uninsured, underinsured, or have a high deductible.

The screening program, known as Project Pink, is made available as a community service through a special grant from the Sonoma Valley Hospital Foundation. Project Pink breast screenings use the Hospital’s 3D Mammography System with state-of-the-art technology for improved accuracy.

To participate in the program, a woman must:

  • Obtain an order from her physician who can fax the order to Sonoma Valley Hospital at 707.935.5271.
  • Call 707.935.5215 to make an appointment.  Be sure to tell the scheduler that you want to participate in Project Pink.  
  • Let the scheduler know if you have had mammograms at another facility in the past.
  • If you do not have a physician, contact the Mammography Department at 707.935.5215 and you will be assisted.

Screenings will be conducted at the Sonoma Valley Hospital’s Mammography Department located within the hospital at 347 Andrieux Street in Sonoma. Bilingual support staff is available.

To register for Project Pink or for more information, please call 707-935-5215 or visit sonomavalleyhospital.org.
