Accreditation Kudos to Our Comprehensive Breast Center

The Comprehensive Breast Center has once again earned three-year full accreditation from the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC). Our Comprehensive Breast Center is the only facility in Central Massachusetts to achieve this prestigious status. The NAPC accreditation team called our Comprehensive Breast Center “a top-notch facility” that in many instances far exceeded every standard for accreditation. They noted, “This is a spectacular center with an engaged team of highly qualified professionals. The administrative support is evident in many ways, especially in the construction of an outstanding physical facility where patient care and comfort is prioritized in every way.” Well done and congratulations to all in earning this distinction once again!
