Hoag Hospital Breast Care Center Recognized as a Certified Quality Breast Center
Date:7/13/2009

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., July 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian announced today that its Breast Care Center, one of the most advanced breast care centers in Southern California, has been recognized by the National Consortium of Breast Centers (NCBC) as a Certified Quality Breast Center. Hoag is the first hospital in Orange County (Calif.) and one of only six hospitals in the nation to receive this coveted designation, joining the ranks of Johns Hopkins.

The National Consortium of Breast Centers has created a stratified certification program through their National Quality Measures for Breast Centers (NQMBC) Program. This program uses quality metrics to allow breast centers to compare their performance with others across the United States. Example quality measures in breast imaging, surgery and pathology include timeliness of care, mammography call back rate, five-year stage specific survival rate, patient satisfaction survey response rate and breast conservation surgery rate, among other indicators.

Hoag Breast Care Center's commitment to patient-centered care through seamless coordination by its multidisciplinary team of specialists in conjunction with the Hospital's dedication to offer patients the latest technology in breast screening, diagnosis and treatment was paramount in its receiving this recognition.

"The Hoag Breast Care Center team is honored to be the first hospital in Orange County and sixth in the nation to have earned the recognition of a Certified Quality Breast Center," says Hoag Senior Vice President and Chief Quality Officer Jack Cox, MD. "Hoag's participation in the NQMBC is evidence that we acknowledge the importance of implementing and measuring quality patient care and are taking proactive steps to continuously improve our performance in order to maintain our position as a leading Breast Care Center in the nation."
