Annual Free Mammography Clinic

Flowers Outside Gillis Center

Sulphur Springs, TX: The Hopkins County Health Care Foundation and CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital–Sulphur Springs are again partnering to offer a free mammography clinic for uninsured women in Hopkins County.

This year, the clinic will be bigger and better! At the request of the Foundation board of directors, 60 free mammogram appointments will be available on three Saturdays in October. That is up from the usual 40 free mammograms offered on two Saturdays in October.

The 2023 clinic will be held on Saturday, October 14, Saturday, October 21, and Saturday, October 28, from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.

 They take appointments on a first-come, first-served basis. Participants must be uninsured women over 40 and reside in Hopkins County.

 The clinic is made possible by part of the proceeds of the fourth annual Designer Handbag Bingo held in August and donations made by individuals to help fund this much-needed clinic.

The clinic will be at the Ruth & Jack Gillis Women’s Center, a part of the CHRISTUS Mother Frances Hospital–Sulphur Springs. They opened the facility in 2020, featuring the latest equipment and technology to serve Hopkins County better. Mammograms will be on the 3D machine for the most excellent accuracy.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and a good time for women to schedule mammograms. The Foundation wants to make sure that more women have an opportunity to have a mammogram, and that is why this has become an annual outreach program.

Eligible women wishing to receive the free mammogram clinic should call 903-438-4325 to make an appointment as soon as possible. The spaces fill quickly each year.

The Hopkins County Health Care Foundation was founded in 1997 and is an IRS-designated 501 (c) 3 non-profit governed by an independent board of directors.
