A-BE-C’s Centers of Excellence program is the first to recognize health systems that report meeting the highest standards of treatment for the rare conditions of bladder and cloacal exstrophy, including post-operative and long-term care.


The “Center of Excellence” designation is not an accreditation or certification, by the Association for the Bladder Exstrophy Community (A-BE-C) and should not be held out to, or understood by, the public or any third party as indicative of A-BE-C’s opinion that those who attain it have met any standard of quality or achievement. Designation is self-reported and peer reviewed by A-BE-C’s medical advisory board and staff.
