Recognition of the Doctors Hospital of Manteca Women's Imaging Center as a Certified Quality Breast Center of ExcellenceJun 20, 2016
Doctors Hospital of Manteca Women's Imaging Center has recently been recognized as a Certified Quality Breast Center of Excellence in the National Quality Measures for Breast Centers ProgramTM (NQMBCTM). This distinguished honor represents a commitment by this breast center to provide the highest level of quality breast health care to patients in their community. This level of certification in the NQMBCTM Program is valid for one year.
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. Doctors Hospital of Manteca Women's Imaging Center actively ensures they provide the best possible quality care to breast patients in their community.
Doctors Hospital of Manteca offers state-of-the art imaging services for women in the Women’s Imaging Center, and personalized patient care with a dedicated Nurse Navigator. The Mission of the Breast Health Program is to provide a continuum of services under one roof, and easy accessibility by patients and professionals throughout the San Joaquin Valley area. The philosophy behind this Mission is to shorten the wait time from detection of a lump, or an abnormal mammogram to a diagnosis within 5 working days, therefore alleviating undue stress and anxiety for the patient.
