May 19, 2011

Winthrop-University Hospital’s Breast Health Center is proud to announce it has earned a three-year/full accreditation by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), a program administered by the American College of Surgeons. Winthrop’s Breast Health Center is the only one in Nassau County to earn this prestigious accreditation.

Accreditation is only given to those centers that have voluntarily committed to provide the highest level of quality breast care and that undergo a rigorous evaluation process and review of their performance. The Breast Health Center received the highest scores on all standards and the NAPBC surveyors were impressed by the overall excellence of Winthrop’s program.

“By achieving accreditation by the NAPBC as a center of excellence, Winthrop-University Hospital’s Breast Health Center demonstrates that we are committed to providing the highest quality of care to our patients through a multidisciplinary approach to the evaluation and management of diseases of the breast,” said Frank A. Monteleone, MD, FACS, Chief of the Division of Breast Services at Winthrop.

Receiving care at a NAPBC-accredited center ensures patients will have access to comprehensive care, including a full range of state-of-the-art services, a multidisciplinary team approach to coordinate the best treatment options, information about ongoing clinical trials and new treatment options, and most importantly, quality breast care close to home.
