Accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers
National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC) accreditation is the gold standard for breast center accreditation that evaluates strengths across a wide spectrum of services including prevention, early detection, diagnosis, support staff, staging, cancer treatment, rehabilitation, the quality of the multidisciplinary team and genetic counseling. To receive accreditation, breast centers must undergo a rigorous evaluation and review of their performance and adherence to NAPBC standards. Based on these stringent, nationally recognized, evidence-based quality measures, accreditation is granted only to those centers that commit to providing the best possible comprehensive care to patients with diseases of the breast.
Recognized as an American College for Radiology Breast Imaging Center of Excellence
The Breast Imaging Center of Excellence (BICOE) designation is awarded to breast imaging centers that achieve excellence earning accreditation in all of the ACR's voluntary breast-imaging accreditation programs and modules (Breast MRI, Breast Ultrasound, and Mammography), in addition to the mandatory Mammography Accreditation Program. In addition to breast radiology accreditation, Porter Adventist Hospital is also accredited in other radiology and imaging modalities.
Certified by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Mammography Quality Standards Act and Program
The Breast Care Center meets or exceeds the requirements of the Mammography Quality Standards Act to ensure that all women have access to quality mammography for the detection of breast cancer in its earliest, most treatable stages.
