Pink at Portage Offers Convenient Saturday Hours

VALPARAISO – Porter Health Care System presents “Pink at Portage,” a special monthly event for women needing their annual mammogram, from 7 a.m. to Noon, Saturday, October 8 in the Women’s Center at Portage Hospital, 3630 Willowcreek Road, Portage.

In addition to getting their annual screening, those in attendance will receive a complimentary brunch.

Mammograms are an essential tool to the early detection of breast cancer. Early detection is important, as the chances of the successful treatment of breast cancer are greater in the beginning stages, with an increased range of treatment options, less extensive surgery and better outcomes. The American Cancer Society recommends that women age 40 or older, or those considered at risk, receive a mammogram each year.

To participate in Pink at Portage, a woman must be age 40 or older and know the date of her last mammogram. Insurance will be charged and only covers one mammogram annually. For more information or to pre-register, call 219-983-8399.

Porter Health Care System has two hospital campuses and seven outpatient facilities serving Porter, Lake, LaPorte, Starke and Jasper counties. With more than 350 physicians representing 50 medical specialties, Porter Health Care System is committed to medical excellence and personalized, patient-centered care. Porter is directly or indirectly owned by a partnership that proudly includes physician owners, including certain members of the hospital’s medical staff.
