The goal of Nevada Health Centers’ Mammovan is to make mammography services accessible and convenient for women by visiting locations across Nevada. These screenings are primarily for women age 40 and older; however, screenings will be provided to those younger than 40 that have a physician referral. The Mammovan will be stopping in Ely and Duckwater soon. Call 1.877.581.6266 to make an appointment for one of the following dates:

• Tuesday and Wednesday, July 25 and 26, 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Ely Duck Pond, off of 10th, between Campton and Clark.

• Thursday, July 27, 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Duckwater Health Clinic, 502 Duckwater Falls Rd.

NVHC’s mission is to provide access to quality healthcare services throughout Nevada. We accept most insurance plans, Medicaid and Medicare and offer sliding fee scale for uninsured patients.

Nevada Health Centers (NVHC) operates the Mammovan, a mobile mammography van that provides convenient access to mammography services to women. The Mammovan began operations in 2000, and was initially made possible by a grant secured by former Congressman John Ensign and former First Lady of Nevada, Dema Guinn.

One easy way to support the Mammovan and the fight against breast cancer, is to get the breast cancer awareness license plate at the DMV. It’s easy to spot – it’s the one with the pink ribbon! A portion of each license plate purchased goes directly to supporting these mammography screenings provided by Nevada Health Centers.
