Since early detection is key to treating and surviving breast cancer, CarePoint Health-Bayonne Medical Center is again offering additional opportunities for women age 40+ to obtain this vital screening during Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

Through its 4th Annual Mammogram-a-thon, CarePoint will offer the service at Bayonne Medical Center, 29th Street and Avenue E, on Oct. 18 and 20.

No referral for participants is required if they have not had a screening mammogram within the past 12 months. Most insurances are accepted. If individuals are uninsured, a free screening is available through the Madeline LoRe Foundation if they consent to financial screening. Otherwise the cost is $99.

To register, participants should call (201) 418-3220 and mention they want to be part of the Mammogram-a-thon.
CarePoint is Bayonne’s local health care provider, offering a full continuum of care to city residents. This comprehensive program often begins with the response of McCabe Ambulance, a CarePoint partner. It continues with care from the Bayonne Medical Center Emergency Department, diagnostic departments, and inpatient and outpatient services.
