The Women’s Boutique at Riverview Health recently received a Three-Year Accreditation Award in Post-Mastectomy Prosthetics by the American Board for Certification in Orthotics, Prosthetics & Pedorthics, Inc.
This award involves products such as wigs, specialty bras and breast forms for women who have undergone chemotherapy treatment or mastectomies after a breast cancer diagnosis.
“A lot of women who have breast cancer don’t know these types of products exist,” said Terri McCall, Women’s Boutique manager. “Battling cancer is very stressful, and losing your hair or breasts can be life-changing events. These products can help women bring back their confidence—that’s what we’re all about.”
The Women’s Boutique at Riverview Health is recognized for achievements in the areas of Organizational Management, Patient Care Standards, Quality Assurance, Supplier Compliance and Facility and Safety Management. This award represents the highest level of accreditation achievable in the profession of orthotics and prosthetics.
