CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. – Chambersburg Hospital has received a 2018 Women’s Choice Award® ranking it as one of America’s Best Breast Centers.
The award means Chambersburg Hospital is in the top 7% of 4,789 hospitals nationwide that offer breast care services.
“We’re pleased to have received this designation, which is also a testament to the skilled staff members and physicians who work hard to provide our patients with safe, high-quality care,” said Senior Vice President of Hospital Services and Chief Nursing Officer Sherri Stahl.
About one in eight women in the U.S. will develop invasive breast cancer during her lifetime, according to the American Cancer Society. Breast cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in women.
“We empower women to make educated, confident decisions about their health,” said Delia Passi, founder and CEO of the Women’s Choice Award. “By identifying America’s Best Breast Centers, we’re helping women find the top accredited centers in their communities.”
The methodology used to select Chambersburg Hospital as one of America’s Best Breast Centers is unique in that it evaluates Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) survey results along with primary research about women’s health-care preferences.
The list of 352 award winners, including Chambersburg Hospital, represents breast centers that have met the highest standards of breast care in the nation as set by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC) and carry the Breast Imaging Center of Excellence (BICOE) seal from the American College of Radiology.
