The National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), a quality program of the American College of Surgeons (ACS), has granted three-year accreditation to Milford Regional’s Breast Center.
The accreditation is only given to those centers that have committed to provide the highest level of quality breast care and that undergo a rigorous evaluation process and review of their performance. A breast center must demonstrate compliance with standards established by the NAPBC for treating women who are diagnosed with the full spectrum of breast disease. The standards include proficiency in the areas of center leadership, clinical management, research, community outreach, professional education and quality improvement.
“Milford Regional is very fortunate to have the expertise and caring of our breast surgeons Salwa Fam, MD, and Ashling O’Connor, MD, leading our Breast Center,” says Edward J. Kelly, president and CEO of Milford Regional. “Working alongside a multi-disciplinary team of experienced medical professionals from Milford Regional and Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women’s Cancer Center, patients of The Breast Center are assured expert care with our program that has, once again, received national accreditation. Congratulations to the entire Breast Center team!”
