Certification and range of services

Since 2016 patients with suspected breast cancer may only be treated in certified centers, which are required to meet a series of demanding criteria.

For the women concerned, this certification is a valuable aid in choosing a hospital as it provides an objective assurance of expertise and quality.

Goldenes Kreuz is the first and only private hospital in the whole of Austria that has its own in-house certified Breast Health Center. The initial assessment and certification in 2011 was carried out by Doc-Cert – an independent committee of experts from Switzerland. The prerequisites for certification include a series of demanding quality criteria that have to be checked and approved every year in a quality report.

In addition, each center is obliged to undergo a recertification audit every three years. The Breast Health Center’s most recent full evaluation was carried on June 7 and 8, 2017, once again by experts from Doc-Cert.
The auditors findings confirmed that the Center provides outstanding treatment for its patients. This recent re-certification is evidence of the excellent standards and continuously improving quality at Goldenes Kreuz.
