Mammography at HMC


Congratulations to the Hancock Medical Mammography Department which received high praise during its annual Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA) Facility Inspection performed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The inspection ensures that the hospital program is accredited by an approved accreditation body and certified by the Secretary of Health and Human Services. Samantha Kelton is the mammographer at Hancock Medical and the Mammography Program is part of the hospital’s Imaging Department. With your physician’s order, schedule your next mammogram with us.

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but any month is a good month to schedule your annual mammogram at Hancock Medical. The digital mammography system at Hancock Medical is a powerful tool in the fight against breast cancer.

Consult your physician and make a digital mammogram at Hancock Medical part of your annual check-up.

Your mammogram with a physician’s order can be scheduled by calling 228-467-5483.

Get Your Flu Shot

Flu shots are available at all Hancock Medical clinics in Bay St. Louis, Diamondhead, and the Port Bienville Industrial Park. Seasonal flu vaccines protect against the three influenza viruses that research indicates will be most common during the upcoming season. Everyone 6 months and older should get a flu vaccine each year.

As recommended by The Center for Disease Control (CDC), getting an annual flu vaccine is the first and best way to protect yourself and your family from the flu. Flu vaccination can reduce flu illnesses, doctor visits, and missed work and school. It also can prevent flu-related hospitalizations.

Only injectable flu shots are recommended by CDC for use this flu season.
