Early detection is the best prevention in the fight against breast cancer. Part of that fight is having regular mammography screenings. Nevada Health Centers’ Mammovan makes mammography services accessible and convenient for women by bringing services to them. The Mammovan is continually criss-crossing Nevada, visiting various locations across the state, and it will soon be stopping in Austin and Eureka. Please remind the women in your life to take advantage of these important preventative screenings.
Mammograms are always primarily for women age 40 and older, and don’t require a physician referral. Call 1.877.581.6266 to make an appointment.

Nevada Health Centers (NVHC) operates the Mammovan, a mobile mammography van that provides convenient access to mammography services to women. It has the same credentials as brick and mortar facilities, but being on wheels allows it the flexibility to visit rural communities. 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.
NVHC’s mission is to provide access to quality healthcare services throughout Nevada. We accept most insurance plans, Medicaid and Medicare. Uninsured patients should call to see if they qualify for a no-cost screening provided by one of our generous grantors.
