ACI’s 5th Breast Centers Of Excellence

Date: 6th June 2012 - 8th June 2012 Location: Dallas - Texas - USA

As breast cancer diagnoses continue to grow in the coming years, is your breast center prepared to deliver superior patient care?

There is now an increased demand for state-of-the-art comprehensive breast centers dedicated to specialization in breast health and the prevention of breast cancer. With the baby boomer generation now in mid-life, hospitals can expect to see a growing number of breast cancer diagnoses in women aged 65 and older in the immediate future. Due to the recent advances in technology, shrinking reimbursements, and increasing number of patients, most hospitals, physicians and healthcare facilities are starting to see the benefits of defining themselves by centers of excellence and are willing to invest in comprehensive breast programs. It is imperative for hospitals to develop the planning and investment strategy to succeed in this highly competitive field and capture the consumer market.

Join us at Breast Centers of Excellence June 6-8, 2012 in Dallas, TX to hear representatives from organizations nation-wide that are prepared to deliver superior service to a growing population. This conference will focus attention to the central points needed to produce superior patient care and develop true prevention. Our conference will introduce and discuss topics of interest such as funding, patient navigation, survivorship program development, and more. Network and learn from the top oncology executives and administrators in the nation as they speak on the development and successes of their own managerial models. Don’t miss this opportunity to see your breast center’s full potential realized.
