Breast Care Center Receives National Accreditation From the Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC)
The Breast Care Center at St. Luke's Hospital has been granted a three-year/full accreditation designation by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), a program administered by the American College of Surgeons.

Accreditation by the NAPBC is only given to those centers that have voluntarily committed to providing the highest level of quality breast care and that undergo a rigorous evaluation process and review of their performance. During the survey process, the Center demonstrated compliance with standards established by the NAPBC for treating women who are diagnosed with the full spectrum of breast disease. The standards include proficiency in the areas of: center leadership, clinical management, research, community outreach, professional education, and quality improvement. A breast center that achieves NAPBC accreditation has demonstrated a firm commitment to offer its patients every significant advantage in their battle against breast
disease.

Receiving care at a NAPBC-accredited center ensures that a patient will have access to:
  • Comprehensive care, including a full range of state-of-the-art services
  • A multidisciplinary team approach to coordinate the best treatment options
  • Information about ongoing clinical trials and new treatment options
  • Quality breast care close to home
Recognition from the NAPBC highlights the integrated, multidisciplinary approach our Center provides our breast cancer patients and we are honored to have earned this esteemed accreditation.

"As a recipient of the Women's Health Excellence Award™ from HealthGrades, achieving the NAPBC certification for our Breast Care Center is a further indication to our patients and our community of our commitment to providing quality healthcare for women," says Sally Rappold, nurse manager at the Breast Care Center.
