Hunterdon Healthcare Recognized for Achieving NAPBC Accreditation

October 9, 2019

The National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC,) a quality program of the American College of Surgeons (ACS) has granted Three-Year Accreditation to Hunterdon Healthcare’s Breast Care Program in Flemington, New Jersey.   To achieve voluntary NAPBC accreditation, a breast center demonstrates compliance with the NAPBC standards that look at a center’s leadership, clinical services, research, community outreach, professional education, and quality improvement.  Breast centers seeking NAPBC accreditation undergo a site visit every three years.

As a NAPBC-accredited center, Hunterdon Healthcare is committed to maintaining levels of excellence in the delivery of comprehensive, patient-centered, multidisciplinary care resulting in high-quality care for patients with breast disease.  Patients receiving care at a NAPBC-accredited center have access to information on clinical trials and new treatments, genetic counseling, and patient centered services including psycho-social support, and a survivorship care plan that documents the care each patient receives and seeks to improve cancer survivor’s quality of life.

“NAPBC Accreditation is the hallmark of excellence for breast centers. This accreditation represents the hard work, dedication, and commitment of Hunterdon Healthcare’s entire breast care team to the highest levels of quality and service for patients with breast disease,” stated Barbara Tofani, DNP, RN, NEA-BC, Administrative Director, Hunterdon Regional Cancer Center.

Receiving care at this NAPBC-accredited center ensures that patients 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
