Mobile Health Unit
The Hollings Cancer Center Mobile Health Unit is a 40-foot van designed to provide cancer screening, prevention education, early detection and health maintenance counseling.

Current screening services include:
- Breast health: mammograms
- Prostate health: digital rectal exam, PSA
- Skin cancer: visual inspection of skin for suspicious moles or lesions
- Cervical health: PAP, pelvic exam
- Oral Health: exam of mouth and neck
Reaching Out For Life
Hollings Cancer Center's Mobile Health Unit Goes on the Road
“Over and over, patients have said they feel more comfortable on the unit than they would feel in a hospital or clinical setting,” says Debbie Bryant, RN, MSN, Hollings Cancer Center’s Director of Outreach Services. “The clinicians and staff on the unit understand the patients’ communities. They reach out beyond hospital walls to have a true personal touch with patients. It’s a warm, nurturing place.”
