    Published: 12/18/2012


    PHILADELPHIA, December 18, 2012 – Einstein’s Breast Program earned a three-year re-accreditation designation by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), a program administered by the American College of Surgeons. The Breast Program, directed by Lisa Jablon, MD, FACS, is multidisciplinary -- encompassing radiation oncology, medical oncology, pathology, surgery and genetics.

After an exhaustive evaluation, Einstein’s Breast Program was commended for its commitment to quality improvement; outreach to a diverse community; commitment to improving patient care; improvement in use of image guided biopsy; and overall involvement of a multidisciplinary team. By achieving NAPBC re-accreditation, Einstein’s Breast Program has demonstrated a firm commitment to offer its patients every significant advantage in their battle against breast disease, including:
