Nevada Health Center’s (NVHC) Mammovan is Back

NVHC’s Mammovan provides cheap mammograms to northern Nevada women.

Mammovan delivers mobile mammography services. NVHC says early detection is vital to fighting breast cancer.

Mammography screenings are for women age 40 and older, but younger people can have one with a provider’s referral.

All women, regardless of income, will receive screenings. Medicaid and Medicare are accepted, and uninsured patients pay a sliding scale. There are precautions in place for COVID-19.
