Holy Family Medical Center Women's Imaging Center Offers Free Manicures Every Monday in March

Before or After Patients Receive Their Annual Mammogram

DES PLAINES, IL--(Marketwire - March 2, 2011) - In an effort to encourage women to get their annual mammogram -- and give them the personal care and attention they want -- the newly remodeled Women's Imaging Center at Holy Family Medical Center (HFMC) will offer free manicures to patients who have their annual mammogram on any Monday in March. In addition, patients will leave with a take-home manicure kit so they can continue pampering themselves.

Getting regular screening tests is the best way for women to lower their risk of breast cancer. Screening tests can find breast cancer early, when it's most treatable. According to the latest statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 1 in 8 women in the United States receives a diagnosis of breast cancer every year. 

The newly remodeled Women's Imaging Center now offers the latest advanced mammography technologies to address the unique health care needs of women. "We provide highly specialized diagnostic breast care in a caring, compassionate environment. Our patients can feel right at home knowing they'll receive the exceptional care they deserve," said Maureen Staunton, nurse navigator and manager of the Women's Imaging Center. "We want to educate our patients about the importance of breast care -- early detection saves lives and there's no reason to save that message for one month out of the year." 

The Holy Family Medical Center Women's Imaging Center offers all the innovative technologies needed to provide the special care women need, including screening and diagnostic mammography, all digital mammography with CAD (computer-aided detection), breast ultrasound, and bone density screening. Radiologists specializing in breast imaging are always on-site for our patients' convenience and individualized care.

Any patient who cannot have their mammogram on a Monday in March will receive a coupon for 25% off services at Carmen Nicole's Wellness Spa in Park Ridge and a free manicure kit.

Patients can contact 847/813-3273 for more information or to schedule an appointment.
