WellStar Health System is the first and only accredited breast center in Georgia to be granted a three-year/Full accreditation designation by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC).
The NAPBC is a consortium of 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. Its board membership includes professionals from 15 national organizations that reflect the full spectrum of breast care.
Accreditation by the NAPBC, administered by the American College of Surgeons, a professional organization dedicated to improving the care of surgical patients, is granted only to those centers that are voluntarily committed to providing the best possible care to patients with diseases of the breast. Each breast center must undergo a rigorous evaluation and review of its performance and compliance with NAPBC Standards.
“The breast health program at WellStar has a comprehensive approach to breast care to ensure our patients are getting the best possible care,” said Richard Fine, M.D., WellStar Breast Health Continuum of Care chairman. “This means a team of experts treat each patient. This clinical team brings numerous medical experts together in a collaborative approach to analyze specific cases and to develop a personalized treatment plan that is right for every individual.”
