A University Medical Center department has received a national certification.

The UMC Breast Care Center has been accredited recently by the American College of Surgeon’s National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers.

UMC says this means that patients can trust their Breast Care Center to use nationally recognized standards and best practices.

Medical Director of the Center, Dr. Candy Arentz says that their facility is a “one-stop shop for patients.” The center has treated almost 200 patients since September.
