Marshfield Clinic’s Digital Mammography Unit is coming to a branch near you

Associated Bank is proud to sponsor Marshfield Clinic’s (MC) Mobile Digital Mammography Unit, as announced on October 19, 2012, with a $250,000 donation to MC for the purchase of the new unit.

The unit provides state-of-the-art mammograms to women and features digital imaging equipment and computer-aided detection for precise integration of image data. This equipment allows for the best possible image, less patient discomfort and efficient data transfer to a physician of choice, which leads to faster mammography exam interpretation.

The unit will be offering screenings in July at the following Associated Bank branches:

Monday, July 8, Oconto Falls, 134 N. Main St.
Tuesday, July 9, Coleman, 118 Business 141
Thursday, July 18, Embarrass, 105 Main St.
Friday, July 19, Wittenberg, 501 S. Webb St.
Monday, July 22, Shawano, 129 E. Division St.
Tuesday, July 23, Baldwin, 1660 11th Ave.
Thursday, July 25, Ellsworth, 420 E. Main St.
Friday, July 26, Pittsville, 5292 Second Ave.
Monday, July 29, Sister Bay, 10440 Townline Rd.
Tuesday, July 30, Sturgeon Bay, 1332 Egg Harbor Rd.

“Screening mammography is important because it’s the first line of defense in the fight against breast cancer. Early detection is the key to successful treatment,” said Myron Gadke, mobile services manager, Marshfield Clinic. “Marshfield Clinic believes it’s important to provide mobile mammography services because many women we see would not have access close to home to mammograms.”

The screening is open to anyone, but advance appointments are required.

“Associated Bank is committed to the communities we serve – not only financially, but through focused corporate giving and employee volunteerism efforts that help our friends, our colleagues and our neighbors,” said John Baur, Marshfield community bank president, Associated Bank. “We are dedicated to the health and well-being of our communities.”
