OAKLAND, Calif., Oct. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- About 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime, but early detection can lead to more treatment options and increased chances of survival. On Oct. 17, Kaiser Permanente demonstrated its commitment to early detection by setting a Guinness World Record for the most breast cancer screenings completed in one day at multiple sites.
A total of 5,939 possibly lifesaving mammograms were administered at Kaiser Permanente facilities across the country.
"Early detection of breast cancer saves lives," said Edward M. Ellison, MD, executive medical director of the Southern California Permanente Medical Group. "Breast cancer is most successfully treated when detected in its beginning stages. In setting this world record, our message to members is: 'Please get all of your preventive screenings when recommended -- don't wait!'"
Kaiser Permanente was recently ranked as No. 1 in breast cancer screening, according to the 2013 National Committee for Quality Assurance's Quality Compass® data*.
"Kaiser Permanente's commitment to cancer care reflects our commitment to quality," said Jed Weissberg, MD, senior vice president, Hospitals, Quality and Care Delivery Excellence, Kaiser Permanente. "We have dedicated physicians and care teams who use best practices and cutting-edge tools to prevent, detect and provide treatment. Our consistently excellent performance in the national rankings reflects Kaiser Permanente's commitment to helping our members get healthy and stay healthy."
To further its commitment to fighting cancer, Kaiser Permanente recently launched kp.org/cancercare, available in both English and Spanish. The new website highlights the organization's unique approach to overcoming cancer through earlier detection, excellent personalized care delivered with compassion, leading-edge research and technology, and lifestyle coaching.
