NAPBC Accreditation

Topics in This Section

Fox Chase Cancer Center is accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC) of the American College of Surgeons.  

The NAPBC was developed by national, professional organizations dedicated to the improvement of the quality of care and monitoring of outcomes of patients with diseases of the breast. This mission is pursued through standard-setting, scientific validation, and patient and professional education.

NAPBC-accredited breast centers have met the criteria set forth and incorporated into this program by each discipline treating patients with diseases of the breast. Each center applying for NAPBC accreditation understands the benefits of a multidisciplinary approach to diagnosing and treating breast disease and has undergone a rigorous application process and on-site survey to assure the NAPBC standards are being met.
