Effort to Benefit the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund

HOUSTON (Nov. 2, 2017) – This week, Solis Mammography – the nation's largest independent provider of breast screening services – launches its “Help Us Help Houston” campaign through its seven locations across the greater Houston region. From now through the end of the year, patients who schedule and complete their annual screening mammogram at Solis Mammography, will also give the gift of restoration and recovery.

For every mammogram appointment scheduled and completed at any Solis Mammography center in the Houston area between Oct. 23 and Dec. 31, $10 will be donated to the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund by Solis Mammography and its partners in the effort, HCA Healthcare Gulf Coast Division and Hologic. To signal their participation in the campaign, all patients need to do is use the code “Harvey” when they check-in for their appointment.

The Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund was established by Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner and Harris County Judge Ed Emmett. The fund is administered by the Greater Houston Community Foundation. Because of the immense need in and around Houston, this fund is dedicated to relieving gaps that are not met by other local and federal efforts for those affected by Hurricane Harvey.

“Many of our patients, team members and partners were deeply impacted by Hurricane Harvey,” said DaWanda Nelson, vice president of operations for Solis Mammography in Houston. “We wanted to provide some form of substantial support, while also continuing our message of the importance of preventative screening to overall breast health. In this way, we’ll be contributing to both the health and well-being of Houston women – and the entire community. We’d also like to express our deep appreciation to our partners HCA Healthcare Gulf Coast Division and Hologic for joining us to support and fund this campaign.”

Solis Mammography’s growing presence in the Houston region includes its newly-dedicated breast health center at HCA-affiliated The Woman’s Hospital of Texas. Located in the newly refurbished One Fannin building next to the hospital, the center is uniquely designed to promote patient ease and peace of mind in an atmosphere devoted to both the patient experience and clinical accuracy.
