AllOne Helps WMH Mobile Mammography
Wayne Memorial received a $200,000 grant from the AllOne Foundation for a mobile mammography program, specifically for “vehicle adaptation and implementation strategy for the delivery of mammography services via a telemedicine system in a mobile van.” Wayne Memorial Grants & Development Manager Jack Dennis noted the AllOne Foundation grant closes “the funding gap” behind the launch of the mobile mammography program. The program also received a USDA Rural Utilities Service telemedicine grant for $175,000 toward the purchase of the mobile mammography system; and the hospital’s Auxiliary also raised $100,000 toward the purchase of the mobile van for the program. Dennis now anticipates the services will be operational by the fall of this year. Wayne Memorial Hospital (WMH) hopes to offer mobile mammography throughout its service area, but especially to very rural areas where access to healthcare poses challenges for women in need of mammography screenings. The AllOne Foundation serves 13 counties in northeastern and north central Pennsylvania. For more information, visit http://www.allonefoundations.org.
