The Reinsch Pierce Family Center
for Breast Health
The Reinsch Pierce Family Center for Breast Health at Virginia Hospital Center has been granted another three-year full accreditation designation by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), a program administered by the American College of Surgeons
In addition to reaccreditation, our program was also recognized as a “best practice” and we were chosen to be part of the NAPBC Best Practice Repository. This evolving online repository of superior procedures helps breast centers identify best practices related to NAPBC Accreditation and meeting NAPBC standards.
The Reinsch Pierce Family Center for Breast Health at Virginia Hospital Center was the first breast center in the State of Virginia to be nationally-certified by the NAPBC in 2009 and continues to provide the most advanced and dedicated care to patients with breast cancer.
The National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), a Program of the American College of Surgeons is dedicated to improving the quality of care for patients with breast cancer and other diseases of the breast. It defines 27 breast program standards and 17 care components—from medical oncology consultation/treatment and surgical care to research, a survivorship program and much more—that collectively provide the most coordinated, comprehensive care for patients diagnosed with diseases of the breast. The NAPBC application and on-site survey process is rigorous, and NAPBC-accredited centers like The Reinsch Pierce Family Center for Breast Health at Virginia Hospital Center must be recertified every three years.
