Aurora Health Care Breast Centers Receive National Recognition

Health system touts five of the first 23 recognized facilities.

MILWAUKEE, April 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Aurora Health Care is home to five breast centers out of the first 23 to be accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), a program administered by the American College of Surgeons.


The first facility named in Wisconsin, was Aurora BayCare Medical Center in Green Bay. Aurora St. Luke's Medical Center, Aurora Sinai Medical Center, Aurora West Allis Medical Center and Aurora Medical Center Oshkosh have since been identified and account for five of the seven accredited breast centers in the state.

Each medical center voluntarily participated in a rigorous evaluation and review of its performance. During the survey process, the hospitals demonstrated compliance with standards established by the NAPBC for treating patients who have been diagnosed with breast disease. These standards include proficiency in center leadership, clinical management, research, community outreach, professional education and quality improvement.

"We are proud of every caregiver who has put forth the hard work and dedication to allow our facilities to achieve this wonderful distinction," says Dr. Joseph Mirro, vice president of Aurora's cancer program. "Our caregivers focus on giving every patient the best care possible, are the reason why our breast centers have earned national recognition. The patients and community we serve are the ones who truly benefit from the unsurpassed care provided in Aurora's breast care centers."

"A breast center that achieves NAPBC accreditation demonstrates a firm commitment to offer its patients every significant advantage in their battle against breast disease," says David P. Winchester, M.D., chair of the NAPBC.

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.

Aurora Health Care is a not-for-profit Wisconsin health care provider and a national leader in efforts to improve the quality of care. Aurora provides care at sites in more than 90 communities throughout eastern Wisconsin and Illinois.
