King’s Daughters Breast Care Center has been granted a three-year/full accreditation designation by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), a program administered by the American College of Surgeons.

Patients seeking the best possible preventative breast care or breast disease treatment should check the accreditation status of the healthcare facilities they are considering.
