Redeemer Health's Breast Health Program Earns Three-Year Accreditation


MEADOWBROOK, Pa. - January 2024 The National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), a quality program administered by the American College of Surgeons (ACS) has granted accredited status to the breast health program at Redeemer Health in partnership with MD Anderson Cancer Center at Cooper. This means the program meets the NAPBC standards for leadership, clinical services, research, community outreach, professional education, and quality improvement for patients.

Compliance proves the program is committed to excellence in delivery of comprehensive, patient-centered, multidisciplinary care for patients with breast disease. An NAPBC-accredited center also gives patients access to information on clinical trials and new treatment options, genetic counseling, and patient-centered services including psychosocial support, rehabilitation services, and survivorship care.

"As an accredited program, we are committed to serving our patients and community and we remain focused on access to screenings, early detection, treatment, and quality care," said Dr. William Scarlett, Executive Director of the Cancer Center at Redeemer Health in partnership with MD Anderson at Cooper. "Breast care patients who choose our program receive care from a multidisciplinary team that is committed to working together and providing the best care possible throughout their entire course of treatment."

Breast centers seeking NAPBC accreditation undergo a site visit every three years. Accreditation is granted only to those programs that are committed to providing multidisciplinary, integrated, comprehensive breast cancer services.
