Coach Schedule

JUNE 1, 2020 UPDATE

In an effort to protect you and our staff and reduce the risk of exposure to COVID-19, The following precautions will be in place until further notice:
 

• All patients and staff must wear masks. We will provide one if needed.
• Only patients are allowed inside the coach. No guests or children will be permitted.
• Patients will be screened for symptoms of COVID-19 or recent exposure. If you have symptoms or have been providing care to someone with symptoms of COVID-19, we may ask you to reschedule.  If you have a fever at or above 100.4° F is present, we will reschedule your appointment.


The schedule will allow extra time between patients to conduct additional cleaning of the coach and equipment, and patients will be required to wear a mask and adhere to social distancing guidelines. 

If you have any questions, please ask!

Why Mobile Mammography?

The best protection is early detection. Francine's Friends Mobile Mammography coach makes getting a mammogram quick, easy and convenient for women throughout northeast Indiana. The coach visits churches, businesses, and other locations to bring this lifesaving service to as many women as possible.

The interior of the 40-foot-long motor coach is designed for complete privacy. Radiologic technologists from the Breast Diagnostic Center (BDC) staff the coach, which is furnished with the same FDA-approved and Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA)-approved equipment as the two stationary sites of the BDC. A mammogram takes only about 15 minutes. Board-certified breast-imaging radiologists from FW Radiology interpret the exams.

All women over the age 35 are welcome. Screening mammography through this mobile service is for women who:
  • Have not had a mammogram in the past 12 months
  • Have no prior or current history of breast cancer or problems with their breasts
  • Are insured or uninsured
To schedule a mammogram, call 260-483-1847 or 1-800-727-8439, ext. 68120 (unless otherwise noted)
Appointments preferably should be scheduled prior to the date. Walk-in openings are available depending on schedule.
Occasionally, it may be necessary to cancel or reschedule a location. Please call to set up your appointment at the location you’ve chosen. That way, you’ll receive a call to reschedule in the event of a location cancellation.
