Commonwealth Health conducted their eighth annual Mammothon from 4 pm until 7 pm on October 24, at three locations. Ninety-five volunteers from Commonwealth Health’s hospitals and clinics made telephone calls to women who are past due for their annual mammograms, offering to schedule these critical screenings or to give a gentle reminder about the importance of yearly mammograms. The volunteers convened from Berwick Hospital Center, Moses Taylor Hospital, Regional Hospital of Scranton, Wilkes-Barre General Hospital and Commonwealth Health Physician Network.
This year, greater than three-thousand telephone calls were made from TPS Pavilion, Kingston;
Berwick Hospital Center, Berwick and Moses Taylor Hospital, Scranton. During the three-hour Mammothon, the volunteers scheduled over four-hundred mammograms and provided vital information regarding annual screenings.
