Hahnemann University Hospital Earns Three-Year NAPBC Re-Accreditation for Breast Cancer Program

NAPBC.jpgHahnemann University Hospital recently received three-year re-certification from the American College of Surgeons’ National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC) for its breast cancer program. Hahnemann University Hospital first earned NAPBC accreditation in 2011.

“NAPBC re-accreditation demonstrates Hahnemann University Hospital’s commitment to providing patients with high-quality, comprehensive care. We are extremely proud of our re-certification because it shows patients can turn to Hahnemann for a multidisciplinary team approach to the best care and treatment options for breast cancer,” said David R. Small, FACHE, interim CEO of Hahnemann University Hospital.

NAPBC accreditation is granted only to those centers that are voluntarily committed to providing the best possible care to patients with diseases of the breast. Each breast center must undergo a rigorous evaluation and review of its performance and compliance with NAPBC Standards. To maintain accreditation, centers must monitor compliance with NAPBC Standards to ensure quality care, and undergo an onsite review every three years.

“Only the very best breast cancer centers in the country are awarded with NAPBC accreditation and re-certification. We are honored patients turn to Hahnemann University Hospital for comprehensive breast disease care,” Amanda M. Woodworth, Director of Breast Health at Hahnemann University Hospital and Drexel Medicine.

NAPBC is a consortium of national, professional organizations focused on breast health and dedicated to the improvement of quality outcomes of patients with diseases of the breast through evidence-based standards and patient and professional education.
