Bonnie’s Bus is Coming to Valley Health - Gallipolis

Bonnie’s Bus, a 45-foot state-of-the-art mobile mammography vehicle, will be parked at Valley Health – Gallipolis Ferry on Tuesday, June 22, 2021, offering 3D digital mammograms and breast cancer education to women.

Bonnie’s Bus accepts Medicare, Medicaid, and private insurances. Patients who are uninsured can be assisted in enrolling in the West Virginia Breast and Cervical Cancer Screening Program (WVBCCSP). Funds are available through the generosity of grants and donations to cover the cost of a mammogram for uninsured WV women aged 40 or over. A doctor’s orders are required for screening. Call today to schedule your mammogram at (304) 675-5725.

“We are thrilled to have this opportunity to provide such a vital service for the health of women in our community,” said Linda Salem, a Certified Family Nurse Practitioner with Valley Health’s Gallipolis Ferry location.

Bonnie’s Bus has a mission to provide breast cancer screening services to women in West Virginia, especially those in rural parts of the state with limited or no access to screening mammography. Made possible by a generous gift from West Virginia natives Jo and Ben Statler to the Cancer Institute, Bonnie’s Bus is named after Jo Statler’s late mother, Bonnie Wells Wilson.

Valley Health – Gallipolis is located at 15167 Huntington Road, Gallipolis Ferry, WV 25515. The practice accepts Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance and offers patient discounts for those who financially qualify.
