BreastCare Center Receives Perfect Score from Accreditation Surveyors
The National Accreditation Program for Breast Center of the American College of Surgeons awarded the BreastCare Center three-year accreditation after a 2014 survey that yielded a perfect score on 17 components of care and 28 different standards.
The NAPBC surveyors commented on the BreastCare Center’s “strong leadership,” its “well qualified multidisciplinary and allied health staff” and the “strong support from administration.”
In summary, the surveyors wrote, “Patients who are seen here receive excellent, seamless high quality breast care. Having all the physicians on the faculty and on site make delivery of care expedient and timely, particularly with the availability of a multidisciplinary clinic for an expeditious treatment plan.”
The surveyors also commended the center’s “truly outstanding” 19 percent accrual of patients to clinical trials, which they characterized as “way above our standard minimum.”
