Free Screening Mammograms for Gary Residents

June 26, 2023

If you are a resident of Gary, Indiana, you can receive a FREE life-saving screening mammogram courtesy of the Legacy Foundation and U.S. Steel/Knight Grant. Methodist Hospitals and the Pink Ribbon Society are coordinating the program, which expires September 30th this year.

The funds received will be used exclusively to support the women of Gary who need screening mammograms. To make an appointment, call Methodist Hospitals Central Scheduling at 219-981-5440.

Currently, with funds from this grant, 28 women from Gary will be able to receive a 3D Screening Mammogram at the Breast Care Center at Methodist Hospitals – Northlake and Southlake. Since the offer is limited, we encourage the ladies to schedule the mammogram as soon as you can.

They will be financially screened and confirmed for residency in the city of Gary, which is one of the application criteria.

Expenses for women who may need further work-ups following the screening mammogram will be covered by the Methodist No Women Left Behind program.

Fliers describing the program are being distributed throughout the community, on the Pink Ribbon Society and Methodist Hospitals’ social media pages, and with a Methofax that will go out to over 1,000 physician offices.

For more information, contact the Pink Ribbon Society at 219-472-0704 or Methodist Hospitals at 219-981-5440.

The best protection is early detection…..
