Mobile Screening Services

Thanks to fund-raising efforts of the Friends of Bassett and lead donors, including New York Central Mutual Fire Insurance Company, federal credit union SEFCU, and the Appalachian Regional Commission, Bassett is able to provide cancer screening services with a custom-built medical coach. The RV-type medical coach is equipped with digital technology for mammography and other cancer screenings for men and women. By bringing convenient screening services to populations in rural areas, Bassett hopes to reduce the number of cancer deaths that occur every year.

The screening services of the medical coach are available throughout Otsego, Oneida, Delaware, Chenango, Madison, Herkimer, Schoharie, Fulton and Montgomery counties. Screenings will be available on a regular basis at Bassett's health centers as well as other community sites that can provide adequate space for the medical coach.

Special stops will be made by arrangement with community groups, businesses and organizations interested in hosting a screening session. Groups or individuals interested in scheduling screening sessions in their communities should call 1-800-BASSETT or 607-547-4830.

For men and women who cannot afford to pay for screening services, the Cancer Services Program is available. For information about eligibility for the Cancer Services Program, please call 1-888-345-0225.

Digital Mammography - Close to Home

Our Private, spacious mobile coach exam room

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in women in the U.S. A key component to successful treatment is early detection. Taking time for your health can be convenient with Bassett Healthcare Network.

Mammography screenings are available in your community by appointment in our state of the art coach.

The Bassett Cancer Institute’s custom mobile cancer screening coach is equipped with a full access patient exam room and offers the same high-tech digital mammography available at Bassett Medical Center, close to home.

Digital mammography takes an electronic image of the breast and stores it directly in a computer, allowing the recorded data to be enhanced, magnified, or manipulated for further evaluation.

Our fully-trained staff offers the highest quality care on site. A credentialed mammographer performs every exam.

Images are read by a radiologist at Bassett Medical Center within 24 hours. The mobile coach is linked to your health center via UNITY, Bassett’s electronic medical record system. This allows your primary care provider fast access to your results and assures coordinated, comprehensive care.

In addition, the coach’s self-contained technology and exam room enables staff to perform additional types of cancer screenings, including cervical cancer screenings, Pap tests, and colorectal cancer screenings.

Contact your Bassett health center to schedule your digital mammography screening or call directly to make your appointment: 607-547-4830 or toll free 888-416-3409.
