The National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), a quality program commissioned by the American College of Surgeons (ACS), has granted three-year accreditation to Westmed Medical Group’s Comprehensive Breast Care Center.
As a NAPBC-accredited center, Westmed’s Comprehensive Breast Care Center has demonstrated excellence in the delivery of high quality, patient-centered care for patients with breast disease.
“In today’s world of personalized medicine, we want every patient to have the resources to make healthy decisions, practice prevention, and do it all conveniently with a trusted group of providers close to home,” stated Dr. Adora Fou, Department Chair of Oncology and Breast Surgery at Westmed Medical Group. “Our skilled team works tirelessly with patients to create personal surveillance plans, so that our patients can remain worry-free and able to enjoy daily life.”
To achieve NAPBC accreditation, a breast center must complete a rigorous application process to establish compliance with NAPBC standards. This process includes a thorough analysis of a center’s leadership, clinical services, research, community outreach, professional education, and quality improvement.
Patients receiving care at a NAPBC-accredited center have access to:
- Information on clinical trials and new treatments;
- Genetic counseling;
- 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.
“Westmed is proud to have received this accreditation again. It is a true reflection of the dedication of our breast care specialists, and their unwavering commitment to excellence. We offer comprehensive care in a safe, welcoming and empathetic environment and strive to ensure our patients have the latest research and treatments available to them,” said Anthony Viceroy, CEO of Westmed Medical Group. “Programs like the NAPBC allow Westmed Medical Group to demonstrate its promise to deliver exceptional care for patients with breast disease, at the highest national standards.”
