A new 33 foot Winnebago commercial freightliner is making its way through the winding roads of the River Valley offering quick, convenient mammograms to patients who would otherwise have to travel a distance for them. Each year an average of 1,600 women are screened in Mercy’s Mobile Mammography unit as it travels through Sebastian, Crawford, Franklin, Logan, Yell, Scott and Polk counties in Arkansas.

Arvest Bank is hosting the Mercy Mobile Mammography* unit at our branch locations throughout the region. We are joining with Mercy to make it as easy as possible for women to get their yearly mammograms. Early detection can save lives. By offering this service we hope to help women catch breast cancer in its earliest stages, when it is the most treatable.

Women will be able to register for a 15-minute appointment when the van is visiting their area. The screenings offer the same quality imaging you would get at a hospital.

The Mercy Fort Smith Mobile Mammography van will be performing mammogram screenings at the following Arvest Bank locations on the following dates 9 a.m. – 2 p.m.:

  • May 21: 205 E. Walnut, Paris, Ark.
  • May 22: 4800 Kelley Hwy, Fort Smith, Ark.
  • June 19: 11808 Hwy 71 So, Fort Smith, Ark.
  • June 26: 1107 So Rogers, Clarksville, Ark.
  • July 17: 408 Hwy 64 West, Alma, Ark.
  • July 24: 224 So Coker, Greenwood, Ark.

Most health insurance plans will cover the cost of this exam but may require a deductible payment. If you do not have health insurance that will help pay for this exam, then please let Mercy know at the time of the call. They may be able to provide you with the exam at no charge through Mercy Community Benefit funding sources.
