SLCCU Partners with Healthcare Providers for Breast Cancer Screenings
We continue to do our part to bring access to healthcare to the community.
We are pleased to announce a fourth-year partnership with the Siteman Cancer Center at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Washington University School of Medicine. On Thursday, November 12, SLCCU will host a mobile mammography van visit with breast cancer screenings for women age 40 and older (insured and uninsured). Mammograms are available at no charge to women who qualify.* If you are interested, please check with your medical insurance provider to verify your benefits and eligibility.
The examinations will take place at our Benton Park branch parking lot (2828 Gravois Ave…63118), beginning at 9 a.m. Please bring your insurance card, your physician’s name/phone number and a form of identification with you to your appointment.
Please know that safety is paramount. Some of Siteman’s safety measures for the mobile mammography visits will consist of the following:
- Patients will need to wait in their vehicle until the van is ready.
- Only two patients will be allowed in the van at any one time to allow for physical distancing.
- A temperature check and other screening before entry are required.
- Masks are required for patients and staff members.

When it comes to breast cancer, early detection is important. Having convenient access to life-saving screenings is critical in the fight against this devastating disease.
