Central Georgia Breast Care Center Now a Certified Quality Breast Center of Excellence

Central Georgia Breast Care Center Now a Certified Quality Breast Center of Excellence 

MACON, Ga. (Tuesday, April 17, 2012) – The Central Georgia Breast Care Center (CGBCC) at The Medical Center of Central Georgia (MCCG) 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 the breast care center to provide the highest level of quality health care to patients from central and south Georgia. This level of certification in the NQMBC™ Program is valid for one year.

“Receiving this type of certification is a statement to the quality of care we provide,” CGBCC Manager Sheila Henderson said. “Our multidisciplinary staff works diligently to ensure our program is committed to the best and most comprehensive care for our patients.”

Measuring and comparing quality performance is essential in assessing patient care and allocating resources where improvement is desired. In today's dynamic health care 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.

CGBCC is also accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers and the American College of Radiology. Three of CGBCC’s registered nurses hold certifications through the National Consortium of Breast Centers in breast care patient navigation and The Oncology Nurses Society as certified breast care nurses. Five registered mammography technologists combine decades of experience performing mammograms.

The National Quality Measures for Breast Centers™ 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 five years of work, which has culminated in the adoption of more than 33 National Quality Indicators™.
