Abdu Center Opens Columbiana Screening Site

COLUMBIANA, Ohio – Mercy Health and the Joanie Abdu Comprehensive Breast Care Center unveiled its 3D mammography screening site Monday within Mercy’s Columbiana Imaging Center on Royal Birkdale Road.

“This new site is another illustration of Dr. Abdu’s vision of care that everyone can access, regardless of geography or financial ability.” said Juli Dulay, manager of the Joanie Abdu Comprehensive Breast Care Center. “3D technology allows for more detailed images of the breast, improving cancer detection rates and reducing unnecessary callbacks.”

The screening site is open weekdays from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. It screens woman, regardless of financial ability through Joanie’s Promise, a program of the Mercy Health Foundation – Mahoning Valley that pays for screenings and diagnostics.

Additional diagnostic services can be accessed at the Joanie Abdu Comprehensive Center’s main campus at St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hospital.

Screenings are also available on the Joanie-on-the-Go mobile unit – one of only a few mobile 3D mammography units in the state, and at the Joanie Abdu Mammography, Poland location.
