       LWMC Announces Extended Digital Mammography Hours
Lake Wales, FL – In response to increased patient volume, Lake Wales Medical Center
is now offering extended evening and weekend hours for mammogram appointments.

Effective March 1, the hospital will offer evening appointments on Tuesdays and
Thursdays until 7 p.m., and will offer Saturday appointments from 8 a.m. until noon
every Saturday.

“When we introduced digital mammography to Polk County last Spring, we saw a
sizeable increase in the number of mammography patients we see,” said Devon Bloom,
Director of Radiology at LWMC. “The spa-like atmosphere we offer as part of that exam
has continued to make us the provider of choice in this area for digital mammography.
Our extended hours are going to help us accommodate even more patients and make it
easier for them to schedule their mammograms around their work schedules.”

For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call 679-6858.
