Atrium Medical Center Foundation Partners with Miami Valley Gaming to Raise Funds for Breast Cancer Services

LEBANON, Ohio (April 14, 2022)  Atrium Medical Center Foundation is partnering with Miami Valley Gaming to raise funds for breast cancer support services at Atrium Medical Center. 

Through this partnership, patrons at Miami Valley Gaming may donate their remaining change to the Foundation’s breast cancer support services from April 15 to July 15. Donations can be made via the gaming kiosks at the casino. 

“This partnership with Miami Valley Gaming is just one more way the community can support much-needed medical services, close to home,” said Michael D. Stautberg, president of Atrium Medical Center Foundation. “When guests at the casino cash out at the kiosks, they can donate their change to benefit breast cancer support services, such as the Mobile Mammography Coach and other oncology initiatives, that’s aimed at positive patient outcomes.” 

Breast cancer is the second most common cancer among women in the United States, according to the American Cancer Society. In 2022, the American Cancer Society estimates more than 287,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer, and more than 43,000 women will die from the disease. In Ohio, nearly one in four deaths stem from cancer, according to the Ohio Department of Health. 

Additionally, the Mobile Mammography Coach, which is owned and operated by Atrium, will provide mammograms at Miami Valley Gaming for casino employees and the public on April 15 and May 24 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Since the Mobile Mammography Coach was launched in 2015, it has served more than 10,000 people and detected 58 cancers in patients in Butler, Warren, Montgomery, and Preble counties. 

Mammography equipment on the mobile coach is the same advanced technology as what you’d find in a Premier Health breast center; both offer traditional 2-dimensional and the newer Genius™ 3-D Mammography™. Premier Health radiologists interpret all mammograms, and results are sent to a patient’s physician. 

“The mobile coach offers a comfortable environment with a reception area, private dressing rooms, and a mammography suite,” said Theresa Gustafson, system manager of breast imaging at Premier Health. “Screening mammograms on the coach do not require a physician’s order for women ages 40 and older.” 

To schedule an appointment on the Premier Health Mobile Mammography Coach, please call (937) 499-7364. To donate, or to learn more about the Atrium Medical Center Foundation, please call (513) 974-5144.
