Mammography

Except for skin cancer, breast cancer is the most common cancer among women. The second leading cause of death from cancer in women, 1 in 8 women in the United States will develop invasive breast cancer. Preventative measures such as screening mammograms can increase awareness and assist in early response to breast cancer. Screening mammograms are performed on women who do not have any symptoms. If something is found after a screening mammogram, then a diagnostic mammogram is performed to determine if a lump or other symptom is a sign of breast cancer. Women the age of 40 or older should get a mammogram every 1-2 years, while women younger than 40 should consult their doctor if they are concerned or if they feel an abnormality in their breast.

Together, the staff at Crenshaw Community Hospital and their radiologists are dedicated to ensuring that each patient’s needs, comfort, and health are their primary focus. We strive to be the very best at what we do. Crenshaw Community Hospital – Let us take care of you!

Screening mammography saves lives. Be aware of the risk factors and schedule your digital mammography screening with us today! Call 334.335.3374. Monday – Friday 9:00am - 4:00pm.

Helipad

Helipad Emergency Transport

The majority of emergency transports from outlying locations are done by ambulances, delivering patients directly to our emergency department. Patients with life-threatening needs can also be transferred via helicopter on to a higher level of care from the front lawn of Crenshaw Community Hospital. Having a hospital-based helipad not only reduces the time it takes to transport seriously ill patients, but also minimizes complications associated with the transporting process. In the end, the helipad emergency transport offers lifesaving resources to our local community. View above the emergency transport video taken February 2014 during the Winter Storm.

PICC Program

Peripherally Inserted Central Catheter

A PICC is a peripherally inserted central catheter that is placed in the patient’s upper extremity.

Patients must have an order from their physician before scheduling an appointment.

  • The insertion of the PICC catheter is done peripherally in the upper extremity instead of the chest. (Decreases the chances of developing pneumothorax).
  • This catheter is less invasive.
  • This catheter is placed using an ultrasound guided process with a tip confirmation device. (Sherlock II)
