Central Georgia Breast Care Center Receives National Recognition

Central Georgia Center Certified for Excellence

MACON, GA (Monday, July 8, 2013) – The Central Georgia Breast Care Center (CGBCC) at The Medical Center of Central Georgia (MCCG) has been recognized as a Certified Quality Breast Center of Excellence in the National Quality Measures for Breast Centers Program (NQMBC).

“This honor represents a commitment by Central Georgia Breast Care Center to provide the highest level of quality breast care to patients in our community. We are honored to be recognized for reaching this national level of excellence,” said Nancy White, Director of Oncology for MCCG.

In today's changing healthcare environment, breast centers across the nation are faced with providing quality care while keeping costs reasonable. A breast center's staff must be familiar with existing standards of care while also learning of new advances in technology. Measuring and comparing quality performance is essential in assessing patient care and allocating resources when improvement is desired.

“As the treatment of breast cancer has become more complex, there is a need for a more coordinated, multi-disciplinary approach to achieve a successful outcome. This recognition affirms our devotion to members of the central and south Georgia communities who are diagnosed with breast cancer and need access to the best care,” said Sheila Henderson, Manager of CGBCC.

The American Cancer Society estimates that almost 300,000 new cases of breast cancer will be diagnosed this year, and approximately 40,000 women in the U.S. will die from the disease in 2013. Early detection is key, and the treatment options provided by centers like CGBCC is essential to improve these statistics. For more information on CGBCC please visit
