Creating a Healthy Community
When the first few diplomats came together to form the United Nations in 1945, one of their first calls to order was to set up a global health organization. It was a few years later on April 7th, 1948 at the First Health Assembly that the World Health Organization (WHO) was founded. World Health Day is now celebrated every year on April 7th to commemorate the founding day of this organization.
Since the 1950s, WHO has brought to light the importance of many different global health issues and the need to provide equity in health care services. World Health Day is important to Sand Lake Imaging because we recognize the need to advocate for our patients and to offer important, preventive health care services to change people’s lives. When it comes to changing people’s lives with quality health advice and care, Sand Lake is there.
As an independent clinic, Sand Lake Imaging has the opportunity to offer more flexibility to patients by offering more hours, discipline-specific care, and often lower costs than hospitals. As health workers, we are able to empower patients like yourself, to ensure that you have the knowledge you need to take care of your health through preventive and diagnostic imaging. Being an independent facility, we have the freedom to partner with nonprofits to bring health care services to even more people.
Empowering Our Patients
Sand Lake Imaging believes in offering quality health services to people who need them, which is why we have partnered with Shepherd’s Hope, a nonprofit dedicated to providing access to health care for the uninsured. Our partnership with Shepherd’s Hope reflects the World Health Organization’s goal to address gaps within health care and services.
Through our “Get A Mammogram, Give a Mammogram” initiative that started in 2013, we are able to work with Shepherd’s Hope to provide one free mammogram to an uninsured or underinsured woman for every mammogram scheduled during the month of October. As a patient at our clinic, you make all of this possible when you make an appointment. By helping yourself maintain good health, you are enabling us to provide preventative health care services to others.
Our goal is to provide care for all of your screening needs and help you maintain your health through preventative screenings, such as an annual mammogram. Advocating for your continued health, we want to assure you are aware of what health options are the best for you. Whether it is discussing the benefits of choosing an independent clinic or which breast screening is the best fit for you, we want to help you learn more about your own health. If you have any questions that need to be answered, please call us at (352) 753-2660 or (407) 363-2772.
