Breast Center of Excellence 

Frye Regional Medical Center is fully accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), a program administered by the American College of Surgeons. Accreditation by the NAPBC is only given to centers that have voluntarily committed to provide the highest level of quality breast care and  undergo a rigorous evaluation process and review of their performance. 

During the survey process, the center must demonstrate compliance with standards established by the NAPBC for treating women diagnosed with the full spectrum of breast disease.  The standards include proficiency in the areas of: center leadership, clinical management, research, community outreach, professional education, and quality improvement. 

A breast center that achieves NAPBC accreditation has
demonstrated a firm commitment to offer its patients
a full range of state-of-the-art services.

What does this mean for breast patients?

For women and men diagnosed with breast cancer, their care will be managed by an interdisciplinary team of medical professionals including:

  • Radiologists
  • General Surgeons
  • Pathologists
  • Medical Oncologists
  • Radiation Oncologists
  • Reconstructive Plastic Surgeons
  • Breast Health Navigators
  • Outpatient Diagnostics Technicians
  • Infusion Therapists
  • Pharmacists
  • Nurses
  • Pain Management Clinicians
  • Oncology Social Worker
 

The NAPBC is dedicated to the improvement of the quality of care and monitoring of outcomes of patients with diseases of the breast. This mission is pursued through standard-setting, scientific validation, and patient and professional education. 

Receiving care at a NAPBC-accredited center like Frye ensures that a patient has access to:

  • Comprehensive care, including a full range of state-of-the-art services
  • A multidisciplinary team approach to coordinate the best treatment options
  • Information about ongoing clinical trials and new treatment options
