After a rigorous review of its program components and standards, the Suburban Hospital Breast Center has earned a full three-year accreditation from the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC). “We are very proud of this accreditation,” said Pamela Wright, M.D., breast surgeon and medical director of the Breast Center. “This is recognition that our Breast Center’s physicians and staff provide high-quality expert care for patients diagnosed with diseases of the breast.”

The Suburban Hospital Breast Center is a comprehensive program that provides patients the ease and comfort of receiving their care in one location. “There are very few Breast Centers in the region that are as comprehensive and convenient for patients as our Breast Center,” said Rebecca Trupp, RN, nurse navigator for the Breast Center, who guides patients through their cancer diagnosis by coordinating services, providing education and resources, and much more. Services at the Breast Center, located at 6420 Rockledge Dr. in Bethesda, include imaging, outpatient surgical services, doctors’ offices, radiation oncology and ample parking.
