The Stamford Health Breast Center located at Stamford Hospital has been awarded a full, three-year accreditation by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), a program administered by the American College of Surgeons.
“This reaccreditation is an amazing honor as it recognizes our entire team’s endless hard work and dedication to offering the highest-quality care for patients diagnosed with breast disease,” said Dr. David Gruen, co-director of the center and director of women’s imaging.
In 2009, Stamford Hospital was the first site in the nation to be accredited by the NAPBC and was reaccredited in 2012 and 2015.
“As we work hard to provide the best care for our patients, our multidisciplinary team is always evaluating processes and programs to make sure that we exceed the NAPBC’s standards,” said Dr. Helen A. Pass, co-director of the center and chief of breast surgery.
The NAPBC is a consortium of professional organizations dedicated to the improvement of the quality of care and monitoring of outcomes of patients with breast diseases.
