A Commitment to Excellence
A host of quality recognitions illustrate our commitment to high quality care.
The Jacqueline M. Wilentz Comprehensive Breast Center recently achieved
status as a certified quality breast center of excellence — which
is the highest certification level offered by the by the National Quality
Measures for Breast Centers (NQMBC). The Wilentz Center is one of just
two New Jersey facilities and is among just 18 in the nation to achieve
this top national certification. In 2010, the Wilentz Center became the
first facility in New Jersey and the 10th in the nation to be accredited
as a Certified Quality Breast Center designated a Quality Breast Center
of Excellence by NQMBC.
Joining only a handful of breast imaging centers across the nation, the
Wilentz Center was designated a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by
the American College of Radiology's (ACR) Commission on Quality and
Safety and the Commission on Breast Imaging.
The Wilentz Center is the first center in Monmouth and Ocean counties to
be granted a three-year full accreditation designation by The National
Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC) for "providing the
highest quality evaluation and management of patients with breast disease."
The Wilentz Center is the first facility in New Jersey and just the 20th
in the nation to earn American College of Radiology Gold Seal Accreditation
for breast MRI.
A year after its debut, the Jacqueline M. Wilentz Comprehensive Breast
Center passed its first Food and Drug Administration (FDA) inspection
for being in total compliance with stringent requirements under the federal
Mammography Quality Standards Act (MQSA). For every subsequent year, the
Center passed the annual MQSA inspection with "no" deficiencies—a
success achieved by less than 20 percent of the more than 2,000 facilities
in the country inspected by the FDA.
