“The health of our employees is extremely important to us, and we are in constant search for new ways to offer more benefits. Pacific Coast Medical Services has been invited to our facility for the past two years – each year finding associates who have needed additional testing. Not one of them had any idea there was a concern. Catching breast cancer early can save our employees a lot of heartache and money, and ultimately their lives.
With PCMS, scheduling mammograms is always easy. They have great follow-up, and everything runs smoothly. I would recommend their services to any company.”

Mobile mammography offers your company the ability to safely and conveniently provide diagnostic mammograms to your employees at your corporate location… a cost effective and administratively efficient alternative to traditional screening options.
PCMS’s mobile services offer the advantages of administering health benefits in a more efficient and cost-effective manner by allocating labor, time, and resources more effectively at your place of business.
Mobile mammography increases productivity by eliminating time away from the workplace.
On-Site, Mobile Benefits:

Consolidates billing with the insurance provider of your choice
Adds value to your corporate benefits package
May reduce the cost of insurance premiums
Comparison of Traditional and Mobile Mammograms:
Travel time is no different than an average trip to the workplace because the procedure is performed at your location
Screenings are scheduled at the convenience of you and your employees
One central location for service questions, costs, technical support and insurance claims. One company/provider to save you time
Mobile mammography requires only 10 minutes to perform and can be scheduled to avoid any disruption to work flow
The screening can be scheduled during a short coffee break
Patients are scheduled by the clinic, one at a time and probably on varying days
Cost per mammogram varies depending on the clinic
Each worker must take work/personal time to have the screening performed
Waiting rooms and procedure times vary
After travel, waiting room and procedure time, the majority of a useful workday has been lost.
Mobile mammography saves the lives of thousands of women, it also saves businesses hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars each year.
Less Absenteeism: Cancers that are detected early usually require less extensive medical treatment and far fewer days away from work.
Greater Productivity: A mammogram takes just 10 minutes. In the same time as an average coffee break an employee can have a potentially life-saving mammogram. If she scheduled the same test in a hospital or center, she could be away from work for a minimum of two hours.
Reduced Short-Term and Long-Term Disability Pay: Early detection can help employers avoid or reduce disability expenses.
Lower Insurance Premiums: The average cost to treat early stage breast cancer is $11,000. The average cost to treat late stage breast cancer is $143,000. This can result in the increase to an employer’s insurance premiums. Simple diagnostic mammograms can find and diagnose breast cancer before it becomes a life-threatening condition.
Enhanced Employer/Employee Relationship: Many employees appreciate the opportunity to participate in health screenings, such as mobile mammography, while at work.
