MARTINSBURG, W.Va. – In recognition of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, WVU Medicine University Healthcare will hold discount mammogram clinics in October at both Berkeley Medical Center in Martinsburg and Jefferson Medical Center in Ranson.
These special 3D tomo digital mammography clinics will be held on Saturdays in October.

Jefferson Medical Center will offer clinics beginning at 8 a.m. at the Women’s Imaging Center across the street from the hospital’s main entrance on Oct. 1, 15, and 22.
Screening mammograms will be offered at a discounted community service fee of $60 (cash, check, or credit card only), which includes the test and the interpretation by a radiologist. WVU Medicine University Healthcare’s discount mammogram program is open to anyone age 35 and older.
Although a physician’s order is not required to participate in the mammogram clinics, any patients without a physician will be assigned a physician to receive the test results.
