McHENRY COUNTY – Back by popular demand, Centegra Health System is continuing its “Ëœfeel good’ mammogram experience that began in July. The “Ëœfeel good” experience has left hundreds of women in the community feeling good that they took the time for their breast health.
At Centegra, a mammogram is more than just a procedure. It is a comforting experience leaving women wondering why they didn’t make their mammogram appointment sooner. Centegra offers four convenient, high-tech imaging suites in Crystal Lake, Huntley, McHenry or Woodstock, so a “Ëœfeel good’ mammogram experience is close to home. Centegra also provides mammograms in a relaxing atmosphere with the latest state-of-the-art digital mammography, a MammoPad ® for extra physical comfort and caring Associates dedicated to making every mammogram experience focused on each individual.
The American Cancer Society recommends annual mammograms for women 40 and older to maintain breast health and as a proven way to detect breast cancer in its earliest stage. Centegra is committed to maintaining the health and wellness of women in the community and celebrates the commitment women make to breast health.
When women come in for a mammogram, they receive heart-healthy chocolate and a long-stem rose from Locker’s Flowers in McHenry. In addition, they can enter for a chance to win a free manicure at Centegra Health Bridge Fitness Center and a Girlfriends Night Out Dinner for Four at Biaggi’s Ristorante Italiano in Algonquin. This “Ëœfeel good’ experience is offered in November and December.
Quick 30-minute appointments are easy to schedule and are recommended. Walk-ins are welcome at any location. Patients should bring a physician order to the appointment.
