Early detection is key in the fight against breast cancer, so access to screenings is critically important. To accommodate women who are due for a mammography screening, we continually criss-cross the state and stop in communities of all size. This Wednesday and Thursday, Nevada Health Centers’ Mammovan will be parked in Gardnerville at the Douglas County Senior Center located at 1329 Waterloo Lane.

Hours will be from 7:40 a.m. to 3:20 p.m. on Wednesday and 7:40 a.m. to 3:40 p.m. on Thursday.

Call 1-877-581-6266, option 1 to make an appointment.

Mammography screenings are primarily for women age 40 and older; however, screenings will be provided to those younger than 40 that have a screening referral from a provider.

NVHC’s mission is to provide access to quality healthcare services throughout Nevada. Screenings are provided to all women regardless of economic status. We accept most major insurance plans, Medicaid and Medicare and offer a sliding fee scale for those who are uninsured.

Nevada Health Centers (NVHC) operates the Mammovan, a mobile mammography van that provides convenient access to mammography services to women. The Mammovan began operations in 2000, and was initially made possible by a grant secured by former Congressman John Ensign and former First Lady of Nevada, Dema Guinn.
