Centers of Excellence

 

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 following designees submitted detailed information demonstrating they are meeting A-BE-C’s rigorous criteria for comprehensive care, delivery, professional education and patient outreach services. Each is required to renew annually and undergo a “Quality Improvement and Evaluation” every five years to maintain the designation.

The list of Centers of Excellence will grow as other centers in the U.S. and other countries that are meeting the standards apply.

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.
