The Star and Barry Tobias Women’s Health Center at CentraState has been granted a Three-Year Full Accreditation with Zero Deficiencies designation by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), a quality program of the American College of Surgeons (ACS).

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.

Originally accredited in 2016, the Star and Barry Tobias Women’s Health Center earned reaccreditation for demonstrating continued 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 proven its firm commitment to offer its patients evidence-based, quality care in their battle against breast disease.

“NAPBC accreditation is a testament to our entire breast cancer team’s hard work, dedication and commitment to keeping pace with breakthroughs and progress in breast cancer care—from prevention and diagnostics to treatments and support services,” says Barry Asch, assistant vice president, Cancer Services at CentraState. “We take great pride in providing the most highly skilled, patient-centered care and personalized treatments for our patients with all stages of breast disease to achieve the best outcomes possible.”
