Goshen Retreat Women's Health Center reaccredited by American College of Surgeons
Goshen Retreat Women’s Health Center was recently reaccredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), a quality program administered by the American College of Surgeons. To achieve this accreditation, the center met standards for leadership, clinical services, research, community outreach, professional education and quality improvement for patients.
“The primary goal of the standards is to provide the highest quality care for patients with breast disease by delivering comprehensive, patient-centered, multidisciplinary care,” said Randy Christophel, Goshen Health President and CEO. “This accreditation honors our providers for delivering innovative and outstanding care to patients with breast cancer.”
Choosing a NAPBC-accredited center assures patients that their breast care team will include health care professionals from a variety of disciplines who will work together to provide the best care available through their entire course of treatment. Patients will also have access to clinical trials and new treatment options; genetic counseling; and patient-centered services including psychosocial support, rehabilitation services and survivorship care.
