The Star and Barry Tobias Women’s Health Center at CentraState 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.

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 every three years.

The Star and Barry Tobias Women’s Health Center earned the designation for demonstrating compliance with standards established by the NAPBC, including center leadership, clinical management, research, community outreach, professional education, and quality improvement. By meeting these standards, CentraState has demonstrated a firm commitment to offer its patients evidence-based, quality care in their battle against breast disease.

“We are extremely proud to have earned this accreditation by the NAPBC,” says Barry Asch, assistant vice president, Cancer Services at CentraState. “The designation recognizes that our entire breast cancer team, which includes breast surgeons, medical and radiation oncologists, diagnostic radiologists, pathologists, support services and other ancillary cancer specialists, combines their expertise to evaluate and provide comprehensive, patient-tailored treatment for all stages of breast disease.”
