HAMILTON— Community Memorial Hospital (CMH) and Colgate University collaborated to promote breast cancer awareness in October to faculty and staff.
The two neighboring organizations say they are also taking this opportunity to promote wellness and educate more community members about the services and programs available in Hamilton.
In preparation for this month, CMH announced the implementation of a new pre-registration process to make the patient experience more seamless from start to finish. This new process includes access to pre-registration forms on the CMH website, a private waiting room for mammography patients, and easy, private transition to additional imaging services if needed.
“Community Memorial is proud to partner with Colgate to promote breast cancer awareness. Our team of radiologists and mammography technicians hold multiple certifications and are compassionate and caring professionals,” commented Jeff Coakley, President and CEO of Community Memorial. “I view Colgate and CMH as partners in supporting health and wellness throughout our community.”
CMH said the organization is delighted to partner with Colgate and its wellness program, which aims to promote a healthy lifestyle for its faculty and staff.
“It’s a benefit for our faculty and staff to have access to quality health care right here in Hamilton. It saves them from having to travel for services, such as breast cancer screenings,” said Amy Ryan, director of employee benefits and wellbeing at Colgate. “Community Memorial is accessible and makes the process easier for patients while ensuring quality is a priority. We are excited to continue to partner with our neighbors to promote health and wellness services.
Community Memorial encourages all women over 40 to have their annual breast cancer screening. Mammography imaging is available Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., by appointment.
