Chico Breast Care Center has been recognized as a Certified Quality Breast Center of Excellence in the National Quality Measures for Breast Centers Program (NQMBC) for the 6th year in a row! This distinguished honor, which is the highest certification level available through the NQMBC initiative, represents a commitment by Chico Breast Care Center to provide the highest level of quality breast health care to patients in the community.  The designation is reserved for a very select few of the participating mammography centers nationwide.  Chico Breast Care Center is 1 of 37 centers nationwide to receive this recognition, and 1 of only 6 in the state. 

“This re-certification is the culmination of intensive data entry that measures and tracks our performance as meeting rigorous quality standards criteria,” says Dr. Jim Schlund, Medical Director at Chico Breast Care Center.  “Our highly skilled staff works hard to ensure that we meet or exceed the high standards of care put forth by the NQMBC.”   

Chico Breast Care Center offers comprehensive integrated breast care including the newest 3D Mammography, breast ultrasound, biopsy, risk assessment, and nurse navigation.  “We are the only center in California to offer this full spectrum of coordinated care all under one roof,” says Dr. Schlund.  Chico Breast Care Center’s Women’s Imaging Team consists of a unified team of radiologists, technologists, and a nurse navigator who are all specially trained in breast imaging.  The center is ACR (American College of Radiology) Accredited and MQSA Compliant.
