Smilow Cancer Hospital breast center
receives national accreditation

Designation ensures quality, comprehensive care close to home

Accreditation seal

The Breast Center at Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale-New Haven has been granted a three-year, full accreditation by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), an accrediting body administered by the American College of Surgeons. The Center's affiliation with Yale Cancer Center makes it the only National Cancer Institute designated comprehensive cancer center in the Northeast to also have the NAPBC accreditation. A breast center that achieves NAPBC accreditation has demonstrated a firm commitment to offer its patients every significant advantage in their battle against breast disease. Receiving care at a NAPBC-accredited center ensures that a patient will have access to comprehensive care, including a full range of state-of-the-art services; a multidisciplinary team approach to treatment; information about ongoing clinical trials and new treatment options and high quality breast care close to home.
