The National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC,) a quality program of the American College of Surgeons (ACS), has granted a Three-Year Accreditation to the Manatee Memorial Hospital’s Breast Care Center. To achieve voluntary NAPBC accreditation, Manatee Memorial Hospital’s Breast Care Center demonstrated 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. Manatee Memorial is the first hospital in Manatee and Sarasota Counties to receive this accreditation. As a NAPBC-accredited center, Manatee Memorial Hospital’s Breast Care 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.
