The mobile mammography van represents a $652,000 investment in Hampton Roads' women’s health. The auxiliaries at Sentara Norfolk General Hospital, Sentara Leigh Hospital, and Sentara CarePlex Hospital contributed to the purchase of the van. At no cost to businesses, the van visits employers across Hampton Roads at numerous locations.
