Good Samaritan Breast Care Center offering mammogram parties and walk-in hours

The hospital’s Breast Care Center is offering mammogram parties for groups of 5 to 15 women who are 40 years of age and older this month and next.

“Yearly screening mammograms are an important step to detect breast cancer early,” said Crystal Beadles, mammography manager at the Breast Care Center. “Some women may feel hesitant about getting their mammogram, but these parties are a way to encourage groups of women to support each other during the process in a fun and safe environment.”

The three themes party-goers can choose from are: Muffins and Mammograms, Pretty in Pink, and Mammograms and Margaritas (non-alcoholic). Each party participant will also receive a goodie bag. In order for insurance to cover the cost of the screening mammogram, attendees must not have had a mammogram within the last year.

To schedule a mammogram party or to find more information, go online to or call the Breast Care Center at 812-885-3627.

In addition to the mammogram parties, the Breast Care Center is also offering walk-in hours for screening mammograms 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and 1 to 3 p.m. Monday through Thursday this month and in May.
