The National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), a quality program administered by the American College of Surgeons (ACS) has granted accredited status to HCA Florida JFK Hospital Breast Center. 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. Breast centers seeking NAPBC accreditation undergo a site visit every three years.

As a NAPBC-accredited center, JFK Hospital Breast Center 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 can be confident that their breast care team includes health care professionals from a variety of disciplines who are committed to working together to provide the best care available through their entire course of treatment. Patients receiving care at a NAPBC-accredited center also have access to information on clinical trials and new treatment options, genetic counseling, and patient-centered services including psychosocial support, rehabilitation services, and survivorship care.

The JFK Hospital Breast Center has been accredited by the NAPBC since 2010. “This reaccreditation is a testament to our unwavering commitment to providing the highest quality of care and support to our breast cancer patients,” said hospital chief executive officer, Ken West. “I am grateful and extremely proud of our cancer services team for continuously meeting the high standards set by NAPBC. This achievement demonstrates our dedication to excellent, compassionate care.”
