Mid Penn Bank Donation Supports Access to Mobile Mammography Services for Those in Need 

Reading Hospital Foundation announced it has received a $25,000 donation from Mid Penn Bank for the mobile mammography patient assistance fund. Donations to the Patient Assistance Fund support women who are uninsured or underinsured in receiving this important screening without worry about access or cost.

“Supporting the health of our community is something our team is very passionate about,” said Joe Butto, Mid Penn Bank Regional President. “Mid Penn is proud to support the mobile mammography patient assistance fund and support women who might otherwise not receive this potentially life-saving screening.”

Women who use the mobile mammography unit will get the same exceptional patient care as they do at one of Tower Health’s mammography imaging locations. Scheduling, testing, follow-up, and referrals will be a seamless experience.

Katherine Thornton, Reading Hospital Foundation President added, “The generous donation from Mid Penn Bank will make a significant impact for so many women in our community. Our mobile mammography coach will travel around the community breaking down the barriers to care and ensuring women in our community have access to mammography services.”

Donations are being accepted to support the Mobile Mammography Patient Assistance Fund. Individuals interested in donating can visit, click “Make a Gift,” and select “Mobile Mammography Coach” for the Gift Purpose drop down menu.
