The Breast Center at University of Minnesota Medical Center, Fairview, is a fully-accredited breast center, as designated 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. Breast Centers with NAPBC accreditation have demonstrated a firm commitment to offer their patients every significant advantage in their battle against breast disease. In the Twin Cities, the Breast Center at University of Minnesota Medical Center, Fairview, is one of only a few breast care programs to hold this accreditation.

The standards include proficiency in the areas of:
• Center leadership
• Clinical management
• Research
• Community outreach
• Professional education
• Quality improvement

Notably, the Breast Center at University of Minnesota Medical Center, Fairview, was recognized for our best practices in four areas:

• Medical Oncology
• Nursing
• Evaluation and Management of Benign Breast Disease
• Education, Prevention and Early Detection Programs
