American College Of Surgeons - Inspiring Quality: Highest Standards, Better Outcomes

National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers

When your breast center achieves accreditation by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC) you can be assured that it is held to the highest standards of care for patients with diseases of the breast.

Our coalition of professional organizations, the NAPBC, works together to provide the most efficient and contemporary breast care using scientific evidence about what works best for patients. At NAPBC we monitor compliance to our standards at each accredited breast center. Our NAPBC Board is composed of leadership from many medical disciplines and upholds nationally recognized quality performance measures for breast cancer treatment. We are administered by the American College of Surgeons (ACS), which for more than 100 years has led national and international initiatives to improve quality in hospitals.
