Saint Joseph Jessamine RJ Corman Ambulatory Care Center Dedicates Sandra J. Adams Digital Mammography Suite

 The Saint Joseph Hospital Foundation, part of KentuckyOne Health, received a generous gift from RJ Corman to bring digital mammography services to Saint Joseph Jessamine. The gift, made in honor of RJ Corman’s sister created the Sandra J. Adams Digital Mammography Suite at Saint Joseph Jessamine, which will be dedicated today.

This is the first time mammography has been available at the center, which provides convenient access to care for people in Jessamine and surrounding counties. Saint Joseph Jessamine expects to perform 10,000 mammograms over the next ten years. Thanks to many community partnerships, special arrangements can be made for women who are uninsured or unable to afford a mammogram.

RJ Corman and the The RJ Corman Railroad Group is the largest philanthropic supporter in Saint Joseph history and provided the funds to establish and build Saint Joseph Jessamine RJ Corman Ambulatory Care Center in 2008.
