The hallmark of breast care and treatment is our integrative teamwork approach and our biweekly multidisciplinary conferences. Under the leadership of Dr. Pamela Wright, Medical Director of the Breast Center, and Dr. Susan Stinson, Medical Director of the Cancer Program, patients have access to a team of highly qualified health-care providers.In addition, we partner with GCM-Suburban Imaging, one of the most technologically sophisticated radiology facilities in Montgomery County with dedicated breast radiologists.
Upon initial diagnosis of breast cancer, and continuing throughout the treatment process, our team of specialists works collaboratively to determine optimum plans of care.
The Suburban Hospital Breast Center has been granted a full three-year accreditation by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), a program administered by the American College of Surgeons. Accreditation by the NAPBC is only given to those centers that have voluntarily committed to provide the highest level of quality breast care and that undergo a rigorous evaluation process and review of their performance.
