Mobile Mammography Van
A breast x-ray, known as a mammogram, is the best way to find cancer in its earliest stages–up to two years before it can be felt. If breast cancer is detected early, 90 percent of women can be treated successfully! All women age 40 or older should have a mammogram every year. At the Sentara RMH Funkhouser Women’s Center, they offer 3D mammography both onsite and on a mobile mammography van.
Mark your calendars! The Sentara RMH screening mammography mobile unit will be Harrisonburg Community Health Center (main site):

2017 Virginia Health Quality Innovator of the Year for Patient-Centered Care
In October 2017, Harrisonburg Community Health Center was recognized as the Virginia Health Quality Innovator of the Year for Patient-Centered Care for our commitment to our diverse patient population. The Health Quality Innovators wrote of HCHC:
Harrisonburg Community Health Center’s commitment to its refugee and immigrant population is the definition of patient-centered health care. This nonprofit health care organization makes interpreters available at all points of service including medical, dental, women’s health and patient education. The Center’s website and educational material are available in Spanish and Arabic. The staff also hosted a back to school drive for children in the community and provides medication reconciliation and durable medical equipment consultation and fitting at its on-site pharmacy.
Beyond its efforts to make diverse families feel at home, Harrisonburg Community Health Center is also improving the health of patients with chronic conditions. As a participant in the Heart of Virginia Healthcare Initiative, funded by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, the center improved quality measures related to aspirin therapy and blood pressure control.
Congratulations to our wonderful team members who make achieving this level of patient-centered care possible!
