The National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers, a quality program of the American College of Surgeons, has granted Three-Year Accreditation to Peninsula Breast Center and the Breast Care Program in Salisbury. To achieve voluntary NAPBC accreditation, a breast center demonstrates compliance with the NAPBC standards that look at a center’s leadership, clinical services, research, community outreach, professional education, and quality improvement. Breast centers seeking NAPBC accreditation undergo a site visit every three years.
As a NAPBC-accredited center, Peninsula Breast Center is committed to maintaining levels of excellence in the delivery of comprehensive, patient-centered, multidisciplinary care resulting in high-quality care for patients with breast disease. Patients receiving care at a NAPBC-accredited center have access to information on clinical trials and new treatments, genetic counseling, and patient centered services including psycho-social support, and a survivorship care plan that documents the care each patient receives and seeks to improve cancer survivor’s quality of life.
Receiving care at this NAPBC-accredited center ensures that patients have access to:
- Comprehensive care, including a full range of state-of-the-art services
