Sonoma Valley Hospital will again offer no-cost mammogram screenings for uninsured and underinsured Sonoma Valley women over the age of 40 during October.

The screening program, known as Project Pink, is made available as a community service through a special grant from the Sonoma Valley Hospital Foundation. Project Pink breast screenings use the hospital’s new 3D Mammography System with state-of-the-art technology for improved accuracy.

The program is open for women who:

  • Are 40 years or older
  • Have not had a mammogram within the past 12 months
  • Live or work in Sonoma Valley
  • Have difficulty affording a mammogram because they are uninsured, underinsured, or have a high deductible.

To participate in the program, a woman must obtain an order from her physician who can fax the order to Sonoma Valley Hospital at 707.935.5271.

If you do not have a physician, contact the Mammography Department at 707.935.5215 and you will be assisted.

Screenings will be conducted at the Sonoma Valley Hospital’s Mammography Department located within hospital at 347 Andrieux Street. Bilingual support staff is available.
