PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – A local hospital is holding a walk-in session for women needing mammograms, and the event has a free twist.
Getting a mammogram is not the highlight of the week for most women, but tomorrow, Mercy Philadelphia Hospital on South 54th Street in West Philadelphia is offering a walk-in mammogram clinic with an extra: free manicures.
Sister Suzanne Gallagher, the hospital’s Vice President of mission integration says, “Part of our mission is to get members of our community healthy, so these walk-in mammograms make it very easy for even a working woman to come over to the hospital to get the mammogram done on a Saturday morning.”
Hours are 8 a.m. until noon. You need a prescription for a mammogram, an insurance card and photo ID.
