North State Imaging earns Certified Quality Breast Center of Excellence designation!
The National Consortium of Breast Centers, Inc. has designated North State Imaging a Certified Quality Breast Center of Excellence, the highest certification level available through the National Quality Measures for Breast Centers (NQMBC) initiative. “This certification improves upon the designation we received last summer and is the culmination of two years of data entry that measures and tracks our performance as meeting rigorous quality standards criteria,” says Dr. Jim Schlund, Director of Breast Care Services at North State Imaging. The designation is reserved for a very select few of the 330 participating mammography centers nationwide. North State Imaging is 1 of 24 centers nationwide to receive this recognition, and 1 of only 6 in the state. “Chico is now home to the only Center of Excellence in breast care from Northern California to the state of Washington to be certified through this distinguished program,” says Dr. Schlund. “We are pleased to be able to offer this level of high quality breast care services to residents of the North State and beyond.” North State Imaging’s Women’s Imaging Team consists of a unified team of technologists and radiologists specially trained in breast imaging. The center is ACR (American College of Radiology) Accredited and MQSA Compliant.
