Crozer Health Breast Program Earns Accreditation from American College of Surgeons
Crozer Health today announced that its Breast Programs at Crozer-Chester Medical Center and Delaware County Memorial Hospital were reaccredited by the American College of Surgeons, having passed their surveys from the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC).
This three-year accreditation demonstrates that Crozer Health follows a model for organizing and managing a breast center that is integrated, multidisciplinary, and has comprehensive breast cancer services. Achieving accreditation provides patients with the confidence that Crozer Health’s breast care team includes health care professionals from a variety of disciplines who are committed to working together to provide the best possible care through the patient’s entire course of treatment and who have the expertise to provide that care.
“We are so proud to have such an excellent team caring for our patients, and this accreditation highlights their dedication to patient care,” said Chantal Reyna, M.D., FACS, FSSO, who heads Crozer Health’s Breast Program. “This is truly a patient focused team effort.”
The NAPBC standards for accreditation address the full continuum of cancer—from prevention to survivorship and end-of-life care—while addressing both survival and quality of life. The accreditation process includes benchmarks for managing a breast cancer patient and ensuring that Crozer Health meets rigorous standards.
Crozer Health’s breast team sees patients at three system locations: Crozer-Chester Medical Center, Broomall Cancer Center, and Brinton Lake. Every patient is assigned a nurse navigator to help guide them through the health system and answer any questions they may have, every step of the treatment journey.
