Santa Barbara Breast Care Alliance  

SBBCA LogoWe are a proud member of the Santa Barbara Breast Care Alliance, our community’s “breast care center without walls.” The Alliance is accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), recognizing our commitment to providing the highest quality evaluation and management of our patients with breast disease. This recognition is only granted to centers that have undergone a rigorous application process and onsite survey to ensure high-level standards in leadership, clinical management, research, community outreach, professional education and quality improvement.

The Alliance brings together surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, radiologists, pathologists, plastic surgeons and clinical support staff from the Ridley-Tree Cancer Center, Sansum Clinic, Cottage Health and other local private practices. This team of experts demonstrate that our center and partnership meets the needs of breast patients by providing multi-disciplinary, high-quality, patient-centered care. A weekly Breast Tumor Board evaluates patients with complex breast treatment concerns in order to provide each patient with a thorough, coordinated approach to optimal treatment.
