More news from Bridgeport Hospital

Bridgeport Hospital offers breast imaging services

Mammography or mammogram is a type of imaging that uses low-dose X-ray to examine breast tissue. It includes two types:

  1. An annual screening mammography to examine breast tissue and check for breast abnormalities; and
  2. Diagnostic mammography, which may be recommended after a screening mammography to further examine an area of concern.

Learn more about breast imaging services and find a location nearest to you.

Schedule your mammogram online

An annual mammogram is an important way to proactively take care of your health. Yale New Haven Health offers screening mammography at 15 locations across Connecticut and at one location in Rhode Island. You can schedule your mammogram appointment online.

No prescription is needed at most locations if you are 40 years and older and have not had a mammogram in the last year.

Biweekly community food distribution continues

In October, Bridgeport Hospital began hosting a biweekly food distribution at its Bridgeport campus, 200 Mill Hill Ave. In November, the Connecticut Foodshare mobile food pantry will be onsite in the parking lot on Wednesday, Nov. 2, Nov. 16, and Nov. 30, from 4:30 to 5:15 pm.

People are asked to bring their own reusable bags and/or carts. Each person will receive one allotment of food, which will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis. This new biweekly distribution schedule will continue throughout 2023.
