The Palladino Family Cancer Center at MidState Medical Center is pleased to announce it has been re-accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers, a program administered by the American College of Surgeons. MidState first earned accreditation in 2009, and since that time, has continued to meet the rigorous standards put in place to ensure that patients receive access to a wide range of breast care services of the highest quality. Accredited centers offer:
Comprehensive care, including a full range of state-of-the-art diagnostic and treatment services
- A multidisciplinary team approach to coordinate the best treatment options for each patient
- Information about ongoing clinical trials and innovative treatments
“We are committed to offering our patients every resource available in their battle against breast cancer or any other breast disease they encounter. What is most important for our patients to know is that they can receive the high quality care in a supportive, caring environment without having to travel far from home,” said Abbi Bruce, RN, Director, The Palladino Family Cancer Center.
Accreditation is only given to institutions that voluntarily undergo an intensive evaluation process and review of their performance for best-practice standards. During the lengthy application process, MidState Medical Center demonstrated its proficiency in leadership, clinical management, research, community outreach, professional education, and quality improvement.
The National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers is a group of professional organizations dedicated to ensuring quality care and monitoring the outcomes of patients with breast diseases.
