We believe that a woman's choice to live in our rural location should not limit her ability to receive state-of-the-art breast care and treatment.

HRRMC is committed to offering the most advanced diagnostic tools to ensure early detection and a healthcare team that can provide exceptional, accessible treatment to patients in our region.

Our Providers

Since the breast is composed of soft tissue that varies greatly from individual to individual, a variety of diagnostic tools are used at HRRMC to improve early detection:

  • Tomosynthesis (also known as 3-D digital mammography)
  • Breast Ultrasound
  • Stereotactic Breast Biopsy
  • Breast MRI
  • Breast Ultrasound-guided Biopsies

To make an appointment for a mammogram (with a doctor's order), call (719) 530-2318. HRRMC offers both 2-D and 3-D digital mammography. We recommend that you contact your insurance company to determine if they cover 3-D mammography. Click here to learn more about mammography at HRRMC.
