Albertsons Companies and Vons Foundation: Supporting Affordable Mammography in Mammoth Lakes

Mammoth Hospital CEO Tom Parker, Director of Medical Imaging Yuri Parisky, M.D., Mammoth Vons Store Manager Mark Fiddament, and Mammoth Hospital Foundation Executive Director Gardiner Miller celebrate the Albertson’s Companies and Vons Foundation gift in October 2023.

The Albertson’s Companies and Vons Foundation has been giving back to the Mammoth community for over a decade. In 2022, this Foundation hit the $100,000 mark of generously sponsoring Mammoth Hospital’s low-cost mammography program, which offers $20 mammograms to uninsured and underinsured patients.

Each year, Vons and Albertsons stores collect donations from shoppers as they check out their groceries and grants the proceeds to various organizations who are fighting cancer. The Albertson’s Companies and Vons Foundation granted $30,000 to the Mammoth Hospital Foundation in 2023 alone, their largest gift ever.

Early detection truly saves lives, and the Albertson’s Companies and Vons Foundation is ensuring that all Mammoth Hospital patients, regardless of income, have access to this lifesaving resource.
