Breast Cancer Awareness Month at Blue Mountain Hospital

Since 1985, October has been designated as Breast Cancer Awareness Month to bring forward the importance of monitoring breast health in women everywhere. Breast cancer effects one in eight women in the United States and is the second leading cause of cancer death in women. While breast cancer is not always treatable or preventable, if caught early enough the five year survival rate of breast cancer is almost 100%!

So, how do you detect breast cancer early enough to fight it? ANNUAL SCREENING MAMMOGRAMS! More importantly, the best preventable measure you can take to protect yourself and encourage your loved ones to protect themselves, is by receiving an annual 3D mammogram which can increase the possibility of early detection by 30-40% more than standard mammograms.

This October, Blue Mountain Hospital is doing everything we can to educate the public on the importance of receiving annual mammograms and encouraging women to opt for a hospital or clinic that offers 3D mammograms. If you are 40 or older of if you have a history of breast cancer, then please keep reading and call now to make your appointment at Blue Mountain Hospital this October.

  • Special $99 Cash Price
    • Do not miss out on this potentially life-saving annual screening mammogram just because of the price. Blue Mountain Hospital is offering a special cash price of $99, compared to our normal cash price of $149, for those who do not have or do not want to use your health insurance.
  • Walk Away with Peace of Mind and a Gift
    • Everyone who gets a mammogram throughout the month of October will not only walk away with the confidence that they may have saved their life, but you will also walk away with a pink BMH water bottle or a breast cancer awareness t-shirt (while supplies last).
  • The Gift That (might) Keep On Giving
    • In addition to your guaranteed gift, you will be entered into weekly and grand prize drawings! Get a mammogram, cross your fingers, and win a Michael Kors purse, Beats headphones, a Naked Minky blanket, a luxurious robe, gas cards, spa gift cards, and more!
  • How Good Are You at Guessing How Much Stuff is in a Jar?
    • At the front desk of Blue Mountain Hospital, you will find a large jar of pink starbursts. While you are checking in for your mammogram, try to guess the correct number (without going over) and you will win the starbursts, a breast cancer awareness t-shirt, and a Blue Mountain Bistro gift certificate!
  • On Wednesday, We Wear Pink
    • Search your closet for anything and everything PINK! Join the Blue Mountain Hospital staff on Wednesday, October 6th for a pink day! We will all be wearing our breast cancer awareness month t-shirts and decorating the hospital in pink to show our support and solidarity for women.

In all seriousness, Blue Mountain Hospital wants to make this year's breast cancer awareness month the most successful that we've had. We are passionate about keeping the women of our community safe and healthy. Please make your mammogram appointment and encourage your friends and family to make theirs as well.
