The Breast Program
Each year, the Breast Program treats 500+ women newly-diagnosed with breast cancer (about 40% of the breast cancer patients in Western New York); and provides second opinions/treatments for advanced disease to many more, with 14,000+ outpatient visits and 900+ surgeries. The patient-focused program is committed to best practices and ongoing continuous quality evaluation/improvement. RPCI is a founding member of the nation’s leading breast cancer quality evaluation program – the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) Breast Cancer Outcomes Program. Since 1997, this group has evaluated quality of care at America’s top cancer centers, and used this information to redefine care standards and evaluate new treatment outcomes.
