Comprehensive Breast Care Centers
Aurora Cancer Care is home to breast centers that are accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), a program administered by the American College of Surgeons.
Each center with NAPBC accreditation has undergone a rigorous application process and onsite survey to ensure that it meets the criteria for 27 standards in such categories as leadership, clinical management, research, community outreach, professional education, and quality improvement.
NAPBC accredited centers are among the leading organizations in their field and understand the benefits of a multidisciplinary approach to the evaluation and treatment of benign and malignant breast disease.
How is NAPBC accreditation different from other types of accreditation I’ve heard about?
The Commission on Cancer (CoC), also administered by the American College of Surgeons, offers accreditation to facilities that have voluntarily committed to provide the best in cancer diagnosis and treatment, and is able to comply with established CoC standards. There are about 1,500 facilities in the United States with CoC accreditation. Almost all of the NAPBC accredited breast centers are also accredited by the CoC. Cancer centers may also apply for National Cancer Institute (NCI) designation, which is different from accreditation. An NCI-designated cancer center is considered to be a major source for the discovery and development of more effective approaches to the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer. There are 58 NCI-designated cancer centers in the United States that provide care to patients. The NAPBC is the first and only national accreditation program to set criteria specifically for breast disease.
This certification and national honor ensures that our patients will have access to:
- Comprehensive care, including a full range of state-of-the-art services
- A multidisciplinary team approach to coordinate the best treatment options
- Information about ongoing clinical trials and new treatments options
- Quality breast care closer to home
