Thomas Hospital has earned accredited status by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), a quality program administered by the American College of Surgeons (ACS).
The comprehensive breast cancer program at Thomas Hospital is the only NAPBC accredited program in Baldwin County and comprises the Breast Center at Thomas Hospital and Infirmary Cancer Care. NAPBC is the gold standard in breast cancer program accreditation.
As an NAPBC-accredited center, Thomas Hospital is committed to excellence in the delivery of comprehensive, patient-centered, multidisciplinary care for patients with breast disease. Patients can be confident that their breast care team includes professionals from a variety of disciplines including radiology, laboratory, surgery, oncology and pharmacy.
Patients receiving care at Thomas Hospital's comprehensive breast cancer program have access to:
"Thomas Hospital, The Breast Center at Thomas Hospital and our entire breast health program are an invaluable resource to our community," said Ormand Thompson, president of Thomas Hospital. "We are extremely proud of this recognition by the NAPBC and look forward to continuing to provide high-quality breast care to our patients."
Accreditation by the NAPBC is granted only to those programs that are committed to providing the best possible care to patients with breast cancer. To achieve voluntary NAPBC accreditation, a breast center demonstrates compliance with the NAPBC standards that address a center's leadership, clinical services, research, community outreach, professional education and quality improvement for patients.
