Women of Wellness
The Women of Wellness program, provided by Hannibal Regional Medical Group and Hannibal Regional Hospital, is an integrated approach for women to receive annual health care services in one brief appointment that will last about an hour. During the appointment, as recommended by a provider, women receive a bone density test, gynecological exam, pap test, and mammogram results. Mammograms are scheduled in conjunction with the wellness exam and provided by Hannibal Regional Hospital Imaging Services.
This service is offered at four convenient Hannibal Regional Medical Group locations:
Canton: Tuesday, 9am-11am
Hannibal main campus: Wednesday, 9am - 11am
Monroe City: Wednesday, 1pm - 2pm
Shelbina: Thursday, 9am - 11am
Hannibal Regional Hospital utilizes digital mammography with computer aided detection to provide the most accurate screening and diagnosis of breast disease. Bone density is checked with a DEXA scan (dual energy x-ray absorptiometry.) This painless, quick procedure is used to screen for osteoporosis. The gynecological exam and pap test are performed by nurse practitioners with Hannibal Regional Medical Group.
Most insurances are accepted. However, if you are under or uninsured, are between the ages of 35-64, and meet the income guidelines, you may be eligible for these tests under the “Show Me Healthy Women
” program. Contact any Hannibal Regional Medical Group clinic for more information.
