Murtha Cancer Center

The John P. Murtha Cancer Center recently received a full accreditation for the next 3 years without deficiencies from the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC). The NAPBC said, "This is a superlative breast center, an incredibly well organized military based hospital with marriage of completely patient centered approach, top notch specialists, adherence to evidence based guidelines, combined with on-site breast cancer research center. On top of all that, their team members are devoted, proud of their accomplishments, enthusiastic about their work, and truly delightful and personable group! 5 Star facility - the best I have surveyed to date."
