PHOENIXVILLE, PA — The National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), a quality program administered by the American College of Surgeons (ACS) has granted re-accredited status to Breast Health Center – Phoenixville. To achieve voluntary NAPBC accreditation, a breast center demonstrates compliance with the NAPBC standards that address a center’s leadership, clinical services, research, community outreach, professional education, and quality improvement for patients. Breast centers seeking NAPBC accreditation undergo a site visit every three years. This is the third re-accreditation for Phoenixville Hospital.

As a NAPBC-accredited center, the Breast Health Center – Phoenixville is committed to maintaining levels of excellence in the delivery of comprehensive, patient-centered, multidisciplinary care resulting in high-quality care for patients with breast disease. Patients can be confident that their breast care team includes health care professionals from a variety of disciplines who are committed to working together to provide the best care available through their entire course of treatment. Patients receiving care at a NAPBC-accredited center also have access to information on clinical trials and new treatment options, genetic counseling, and patient-centered services including psychosocial support, rehabilitation services, and survivorship care.

“Achieving NAPBC re-accreditation for a third time is an incredible accomplishment,” states Rich Newell, CEO of Phoenixville Hospital and Pottstown Hospital. “Our team is focused on providing the highest-quality care for our patients navigating a breast disease diagnosis in a supportive and comfortable setting.
