CaroMont Health today unveiled the CaroMont Health Wellness Coach. The
39-foot, state-of-the-art Wellness Coach will allow CaroMont to offer
mobile mammography to organizations in Gaston County and the local community.
Comprised of highly-trained professionals, the Mobile Wellness Team brings
preventive screening to the places it is most convenient – where
you live, work or play. The Wellness Coach contains two changing rooms,
a clinical exam room and a registration area, and offers the same level
of care available at clinical office-based mammography locations. The
Wellness Coach may be booked for health fairs and community events, or
by civic groups and local businesses.
“CaroMont Health’s goal is to provide convenient access to
preventive screening and programs to improve the overall health of our
community,” said Deanna Roe, Director of Imaging Services for CaroMont
Health. “Mammography, Cardiovascular and Wellness screenings are

While digital mammography will be the only service offered on the vehicle,

Wellness Coach. Combining these important preventive screenings offers
individuals a more comprehensive health screening experience.
