Mammo-Thon Helps Hundreds Schedule Potentially Life-Saving Mammograms!
Commonwealth Health’s second-annual Mammo-thon was held Tuesday, October 1, bringing together
employees fromall eight of our sister hospitals, physician practices and non-hospital affiliates. More than
100 Commonwealth Health employees – including staff fromthe Diagnostic Imaging Center (formerly CDI),
InterMountain Medical Group andWilkes-Barre General Hospital – volunteered their time to place reminder
phone calls to women who hadn’t scheduled amammogramin the last 18-24months. All told,more than
4,300 phone calls were placed and hundreds of requests formammograms were received. The number of
mammograms scheduled will increase in the days ahead, sincemany individuals were not able to schedule
their screenings immediately. Congratulations to everyone involved for achieving such phenomenal
successwith our second-annualMammo-thon Outreach Program!
