Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute at TriStar Summit Medical Center in Hermitage has received a Three-Year/Full Accreditation by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), a program administered by the American College of Surgeons, for providing the highest quality breast care.

Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute at TriStar Summit has been accredited by the program since December 2013.

"We are pleased that the NAPBC continues to recognize Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute at TriStar Summit with a renewed full three-year accreditation," said Brenda Farmer, RN, CN, BN, breast cancer nurse navigator at the institute. "The teamwork that is required to achieve the NAPBC's stringent accreditation standards ensures that our patients receive the best care for all of their breast health needs, and we work to exceed those standards with our comprehensive offerings from diagnosis through survivorship."

Receiving care at a NAPBC-accredited center ensures that patients 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 quality breast care close to home.

"Early detection and a multidisciplinary approach to care continue to be our patients' best defense in treating breast cancer," Brad Cohen, MD, radiation oncologist and medical director of Sarah Cannon Cancer Institute at TriStar Summit, noted.

The NAPBC is an association of professional organizations dedicated to achieving top quality care and monitoring of outcomes of patients with diseases of the breast. The mission is pursued through standard-setting, scientific validation and patient and professional education. Its board membership includes professionals from 20 national organizations that reflect the full spectrum of breast care.
