Centers of Excellence for Bladder Exstrophy


A-BE-C’s “Center of Excellence in Bladder Exstrophy” designation exemplifies the purpose of Association for the Bladder Exstrophy Community’s clinical Advisory Board: making the highest standards of treatment, post-operative and long term care, and support within reach of all people affected by bladder exstrophy.

Centers of Excellence in Bladder Exstrophy are widely renowned for outstanding performance in bladder and cloacal exstrophy care, support and research. Centers are recognized by their professional (medical) peers as leaders in bladder and cloacal exstrophy care and each center meets rigorous criteria for comprehensive care delivery, professional education and patient outreach services.

The designation is widely recognized and sought out by the best academic medical centers as a model to guide their progress from good care to best in class.


Why a Center of Excellence Designation Matters


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.
