Santa Clara’s Breast Center receives 3 year re-accreditation

May 01, 2013

by Esther Duran PA and Sheela Patel

Kaiser Permanente Santa Clara Medical Center has been granted a three-year/full accreditation designation by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), a program administered by the American College of Surgeons.

The Breast Center was originally accredited in 2010 and was successfully re-accredited in May 2013. Accreditation by the NAPBC is only given to those centers that have voluntarily committed to provide the highest level of quality breast care and that undergo a rigorous evaluation process and review of their performance. Santa Clara was the first Kaiser Permanente facility in the Northern California region to receive this accreditation.

During the survey process, the center must demonstrate compliance with standards established by the NAPBC for treating women who are diagnosed within the full spectrum of breast disease. 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.

NAPBC surveyor Charles Elboim, MD, stated in his review that “The [Santa Clara] center actually offers and provides the most comprehensive array of services that I have seen in all my surveys. They hit top numbers in virtually all domains.”

Santa Clara’s Breast Center has a team of dedicated and highly skilled surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologist, pathologist, support staff, and breast center coordinators work together to offer patients seamlessly coordinated care. In his review, Dr. Elboim commented that “the center has a large number of passionate, spirited and knowledgeable staff who care deeply about patient care.”
