Nursing Facility in East Greenbush Offers Incentives for Employees to get Mammograms during Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Evergreen Commons, a 240 bed skilled nursing facility in East Greenbush, is doing something unique for Breast Cancer Awareness month.

From a press advisory:
This year we partnered with CDPHP and Northeast imaging to create a Mammography Screening Day for the employees at Evergreen Commons. Our Mammography Day is scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 29 at Northeast Imaging at 279 Troy Rd, East Greenbush, NY 12061.

They will exclusively see Evergreen Commons employees from 8am-5:30pm. We have 23 employees signed up for a mammogram. Evergreen Commons will shuttle our employees to the imaging center in style as we have rented a limousine for their comfort. We will also be paying them a $20 cash incentive just for having their mammogram on this day. We also made it easy for employees to get to their appointment by not making them use any paid time off, said Kari Neubauer, director of Human Resources at Evergreen Commons.
