Hollings Receives National Accreditation for Breast Centers
Hollings Cancer Center has received accreditation from the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC). Hollings’ Comprehensive Breast Program is one of only two Lowcountry breast centers to hold NAPBC status.
NAPBC recognition, administered by the American College of Surgeons, is a three-year accreditation given only to centers that have voluntarily committed to provide the best in breast cancer diagnosis and treatment and are able to comply with established NAPBC standards. Each center must undergo a rigorous evaluation and review of its performance and compliance with the NAPBC standards.
As the state’s only National Cancer Institute-designated cancer center, Hollings offers comprehensive breast care in a multidisciplinary setting. The Hollings team and services include: medical-, surgical-, and radiation oncologists, radiologists, pathologists, plastic surgeons, nurses, physical therapists, clinical trials, genetic counseling, psychological support, and nutrition education.
