Good Sam Celebrates 25th Anniversary of the Breast Health Center
Good Samaritan’s Breast Health Center was established on February 17, 1994 in response to community concerns and the hospital’s commitment to women and their health care needs. It became the first comprehensive, patient-focused program on Long Island and offered a dynamic multidisciplinary team approach to breast health and breast disease.
In 2009, Good Samaritan’s Breast Health Center became the second facility of its kind in New York State to receive a three-year/full designation from the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC). NAPBC recognition, administered by the American College of Surgeons, is given only to those facilities that have voluntarily committed to provide the highest level of breast care and that undergo a rigorous evaluation process and review of their performance. Reaccredited in 2012, 2015 and again in 2018, Good Samaritan’s center earned the highest scores from the NAPBC for best outcomes in prevention, early detection, treatment and survivorship, as well as for providing individualized supportive services for women at all stages of breast cancer.
Today, the Breast Health Center offers a dynamic approach, with dedicated breast imagers, pathologists, referring physicians, surgeons, radiation and medical oncologists, registered radiological technologists, registered nurses and genetic counselors providing women with timely, state-of-the-art and compassionate care for breast disease.
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of the Breast Health Center, Good Sam will be using the below logo in all communication and correspondence to commemorate the milestone.
