King's Daughters Mobile Health Units
King’s Daughters Medical Center has provided a mobile health outreach
program for more than 15 years. Operating three mobile health units, the
program brings needed testing, screening, prevention, education and occupational
medicine services to communities, businesses and locations throughout
the Tri-State area.
The Mobile Mammography Unit
Our Mobile Mammography Unit provides mammograms throughout eastern Kentucky
and southern Ohio.
The mobile unit is staffed by the same, highly qualified, specially trained
mammography technologists as the
Center for Advanced Imaging. The Mobile Mammography Unit visits many of the King's Daughters Family
Care Centers every month, as well as other providers, workplaces and businesses
in the communities we serve.
King's Daughters Mobile Mammography Unit uses all-digital equipment,
which helps reduce radiation exposure. A physician order is not required
for screening mammography. Mammograms are not a free service; normal fees
apply. Most insurance plans cover mammography services.

King's Daughters Occupational Medicine department offers mobile services
to area employers and businesses on a contract basis. The service includes
many OSHA-required services, physicals, DOT drug screens, audiometric
testing, and more.

We are Grateful
We are grateful to community leaders and philanthropists for support of
our Mobile Health Program:
- King’s Daughters Auxiliary Mobile Health Unit was put into service
in the Fall of 2011 and is named in honor of a $150,000 pledge from the
Medical Center’s Auxiliary. It replaced a much older unit that had
served the community for many years, traveling over 150,000 miles across
the hills and valleys of Kentucky, West Virginia and Ohio.
- The Mansbach Foundation provided funding for a second mobile health unit,
which was put into service in February 2012. The unit is dedicated to
the memory of Samuel Mansbach and Donald H. Putnam Jr. This mobile unit
also received support from the Social Innovation Fund of the Foundation
for a Healthy Kentucky, which provided funding for equipment.
- King's Daughters Mobile Mammography Unit began providing screening
mammograms and education on breast health in 2009. This unit was a project
of the KDMC Health Foundation and had many generous donors including proceeds
from the Rocky Adkins Golf Outing.
