Mount Sinai Queens Breast Health Program for Uninsured and Underinsured Women
Mount Sinai Queens cares about women’s health. That’s why we partner with the New York State Department of Health Cancer Services Program and, along with funding from The Louis and Rachel Rudin Foundation, Inc., to bring you the Mount Sinai Queens Breast Health Program. Through this program, we provide free breast screenings and education for uninsured and underinsured women 40 years of age and older.
This year, more than 232,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer, making it the most common type of cancer in women. Early detection is essential for optimal treatment for breast cancer.
We provide annual clinical breast exams, mammograms, and other diagnostic services, including biopsies, as needed. We also screen for cervical cancer with Pap and pelvic exams. These services are provided at no cost to eligible patients. Screenings are conducted by a board certified surgical oncologist, experienced nurse practitioner, and a medical assistant. Volunteers from SHAREing and CAREing, a community-based support group for cancer survivors, provide patients and their families with additional information.
We also offer free colorectal cancer screenings and education to men and women 50 years of age and older who have limited income and are uninsured or underinsured.
Patients are seen by appointment only. To schedule an appointment or for more information, please call 718-808-7727.
