MeritCare gets breast center accreditation
Detroit Lakes Minnesota 511 Washington Avenue 56501

MeritCare has been granted a three-year, full accreditation by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC).

Administered by the American College of Surgeons, MeritCare is one of the first 51 hospitals, a mere five percent in the nation, to achieve this status - and the only hospital in North Dakota or South Dakota.

"This is something we did to show current and future patients that we want to make sure we are providing them the best care they can get," says Dr. Michael Bouton, a MeritCare board certified general surgeon with a focus on breast disease and surgery.
