Cancer Screening Mobile Health Center

About the Cancer Screening Mobile Health Center

The Cancer Screening Mobile Health Center is one of Denver Health’s federally qualified community health centers, providing patient 2D and 3D mammogram imaging for breast cancer screening, cervical cancer screenings and patient education on both.

Find out at what age women should get mammograms, how often and see a demonstration of the procedure at our Mobile Clinic in this short video.

The mobile health center is designed to help reduce barriers that many patients face when accessing cancer screening services. The mobile health center rotates to each of the eight Denver Health community health clinics and to other sites in the metropolitan area, allowing patients to more easily access cancer screenings. Patients may access both cervical and breast cancer screenings in one visit, or they may opt to have only one service.

Our clinic staff is fluent in English and Spanish. Interpreter services are available for most other languages. Patient navigation and case management services are available to those women who need additional follow-up to their screenings.

We accept Medicaid, Medicare, most commercial health insurance, CICP and Denver Health Financial Assistance Program (DFAP).
