The Breast Center at Sunrise Hospital Is Now Accredited
June 19, 2012
Only facility in Southern Nevada Accredited by the NAPBC
LAS VEGAS - The Breast Center at Sunrise Hospital is proud to announce it 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.
During the survey process, the center must demonstrate compliance with standards established by the NAPBC for treating women who are diagnosed with the full spectrum of breast disease. The standards include proficiency in the areas of: center leadership, clinical management, research, community outreach, professional education and quality improvement. A breast center that achieves NAPBC accreditation has demonstrated a firm commitment to offer its patients every significant advantage in their battle against breast disease.
Receiving care at a NAPBC-accredited center ensures that a patient will have access to:
- Comprehensive care, including a full range of state-of-the-art services
- A multidisciplinary team approach to coordinate the best treatment options
- Information about ongoing clinical trials and new treatment options
- Quality breast care close to home
As the most comprehensive breast center in Southern Nevada, the Breast Center at Sunrise is a program focused exclusively on breast care for women. This includes a full range of state-of-the-art breast imaging and diagnostic services, a multidisciplinary team approach and a dedicated breast health nurse navigator to provide education, support and care coordination.

In addition being chosen by the readers of the Review Journal newspaper as the Best Hospital in Las Vegas, Sunrise has also been the Las Vegas Consumer Choice award winner for 15 consecutive years and has received consecutive U.S. News recognitions for top hospital in Las Vegas.
The American Cancer Society (ACS) estimated that there would be 192,370 patients diagnosed with invasive breast cancer in the United States in 2009. In addition, hundreds of thousands of women who will deal with benign breast disease this year will require medical evaluation for treatment options.
