Gwinnett Medical Center recently received re-accreditation for cancer care from two programs administered by the American College of Surgeons.
The National Accreditation Program for Breast Cancers as well as the Commission on Cancer granted full, three-year accreditation to GMC”s Breast Center for committing to provide the highest level of quality breast care.
The process involves rigorous performance evaluations where centers must demonstrate NAPBC standards that demand proficiency in leadership, clinical management, research, community outreach, professional education and quality improvement.
An NAPBC-accredited breast center has demonstrated a firm commitment to offering its patients every available# advantage in their battle against breast cancer.
GMC has also been granted a full, three-year accreditation through the CoC for consistently addressing patient-centered needs and measuring the quality of the care they deliver against national standards.
CoC accreditation provides value through improved patient outcomes across all domains of care including access and service, satisfaction and well-being, quality of care and cancer outcomes.
“With our range of cancer care, including diagnosis, infusion and support services, among others, we are dedicated to making our patient care the best,”# said GMC President and CEO Phil Wolfe. “While the expectations of accrediting organizations such as these continue to evolve, so do GMC”s standards – in an effort to coordinate the best treatment options available.”#
