Women's Health & Pregnancy

Women’s Health plays a vital role in the overall readiness of the Army. Keller Army Community Hospital supports women’s health through OB/GYN care, breast cancer screening and more. Your physical, mental emotional and spiritual health are our priorities. 

 

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Regular mammogram screenings are a powerful tool in the fight against breast cancer. The American College of Radiology (ACR) and Society of Breast Imaging (SBI) recommend that women start getting annual mammograms at age 40.

The decision to have a mammogram should be individualized based on discussion with your Primary Care Manager (PCM).

 

You may call the Radiology Department to make an appointment at (845) 938-4840 without a referral. You can also discuss having a mammogram with your PCM. An appointment can be made with your PCM by calling the appointment line at (845) 938-7992 or (800) 552-2907.

If you are seeing a doctor outside of Keller Army Community Hospital and have had a mammogram, please ask your doctor to fax your Mammogram results to (845) 938-1120, Attention: Gwendolyn Swinson, RN. This will assure you results are entered into your medical records.

The Keller Army Community Hospital staff are committed to helping you stay healthy. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Ms. Gwendolyn Swinson, RN, Population Health Nurse at (845) 938-8241.

Thank you for taking the time to take care of your health.

Don't forget to keep your family's information up-to-date in DEERS.
