Largest National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC) hospitals

Breast cancer is a common cancer diagnosis in the U.S. Patients seeking care and treatment utilize a number of healthcare resources, from diagnostic imaging to consultations with their oncologist.

What is the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers?

The National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC) is an association of professional organizations dedicated to providing facilities with the structure, education, and resources needed to operate a high-quality breast center. The American College of Surgeons administers the NAPBC review and approval process.

Earning NAPBC accreditation provides breast centers recognition by national healthcare organizations and the public that the center demonstrates a commitment to providing quality care and complies with nationally recognized standards.

What is included in the NAPBC standards?

NAPBC standards are extensive and cover a variety of areas for hospitals to meet. Some of the main categories of standards NAPBC tracks include:

  • Clinical research
  • Education and professional and community outreach
  • Facility and equipment resources
  • Institutional and administrative commitment
  • Patient care expectations and protocols
  • Personnel and services resources
  • Program scope and governance
  • Quality improvement

By becoming accredited, NAPBC hospitals benefit from recognition by patients and other healthcare organizations as a leading breast cancer center as well as being able to review and benchmark against similar facilities.
