The mobile mammogram screening event at Orcas Senior Center was another resounding success this year. Assured Imaging’s team served a record 94 patients, 15 more than last year’s record! Their Washington Operations Administrator, John Hayner, said they see their biggest attendance for the whole year here on Orcas.
The big turnout prompted them to extend their hours on this visit and the final count means that they will look to schedule an additional half day next year. Hayner attributes part of the success to the Orcas community grapevine, which he believes was responsible for many of the 14 walk-ins they saw.
Playing an impromptu role in this year’s screenings was San Juan County staff, including Jami Mitchell and Jason Ontjes, who graciously assisted with efforts around the relocation of the screening process to inside the Senior Center building when the coach generator suffered a malfunction. Orcas Senior Center sends them a big “Thank you” for their help.
