MIDLAND The Breast Center at Midland Health has recently been recognized as a Certified Quality Breast Center of Excellence in the National Quality Measures for Breast Centers Program (NQMBC).
This distinguished honor represents a commitment by this breast center to provide the highest level of quality breast healthcare to patients in our community. This level of certification in the NQMBC Program is valid for one year.
Measuring and comparing quality performance is essential in assessing patient care and allocating resources where improvement is desired. In today’s dynamic healthcare industry, breast centers are faced with providing quality care while simultaneously keeping costs under control. A center’s staff must not only be familiar with existing standards of care but must also be aware of new advances in technology. The Breast Center actively ensures they provide the best possible quality care to breast patients in our community.
The National Consortium of Breast Centers is proud to recognize The Breast Center as a Certified Quality Breast Center of Excellence.
The National Quality Measures for Breast Center were developed by referencing the Health Care Advisory Board’s Clinical Quality Dash Board for breast centers published in the fall of 2004. The National Quality Measures for Breast Centers reflect more than 11 years of work, which has culminated in the adoption of more than 33 National Quality Indicators.
Midland Health’s Breast Center began this journey 10 years ago, in 2011, as a Certified Participant Quality Breast Center. In 2013, the Breast Center achieved the title of Certified Quality Breast Center of Excellence. The Breast Center has continually maintained this certification for our patients and community.
The National Consortium of Breast Centers promotes excellence in breast healthcare for the general public through a network of diverse professionals dedicated to the active exchange of ideas and resources.
