The UHS Breast Center has once again been recognized for its multidisciplinary, high-quality, patient-centered care. In June 2015, the Breast Center was awarded full three-year re-accreditation by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC). UHS first achieved this accreditation in 2012—the first comprehensive breast center in the region to do so.
NAPBC Accreditation is the seal of approval from the American College of Surgeons, acknowledging a breast center’s commitment to the highest quality of evaluation and management of patients with breast disease. Accredited centers receive a thorough review of their leadership, clinical management, research, community outreach and staff education.
