American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

About the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers

The National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC) provides the structure and resources you need to develop and operate a high-quality breast center. Programs that are accredited by the NAPBC follow a model for organizing and managing a breast center to ensure multidisciplinary, integrated, comprehensive breast cancer services.

NAPBC accreditation provides:

  • Breast cancer quality performance measures that serve as benchmarks for measuring quality improvement.
  • Public recognition of each accredited center’s commitment to providing quality care and monitoring of outcomes for patients with diseases of the breast.
  • Acknowledgement that each NAPBC-accredited breast center has documented outcomes that meet or exceed national benchmarks.
  • Internal and external assessment of breast cancer performance based on nationally recognized standards that demonstrate each accredited center’s commitment to quality.
  • Recognition by national health care organizations for the commitment to providing high-quality breast care.

Achieving accreditation by the NAPBC ensures your patients can be confident that your breast care team includes health care professionals from a variety of disciplines who are committed to working together to provide the best care possible through their entire course of treatment.
