LIBERTYVILLE – Advocate Condell Medical Center is proud to announce that
its Cancer Institute has earned a full, three-year accreditation from
the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers and was also
granted a three-year accreditation by the Commission on Cancer, both
administered by the American College of Surgeons.
by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (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.
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
· And, most importantly, quality breast care close to home.
addition to the NAPC accreditation, Advocate Condell was granted
accreditation by the Commission on Cancer (CoC). To earn a CoC
accreditation, a cancer program must meet or exceed 34 quality care
standards, be evaluated every three years, and maintain levels of
excellence in the delivery of comprehensive patient-centered care.
accreditations demonstrate our commitment to our patients and the fight
against cancer,” said Virginia Friesen, RN, director of the Cancer
Institute at Advocate Condell. “When patients come to our Cancer
Institute, they can be assured they are receiving every significant
advantage in their battle against the disease.”
