MBSAQIP Accredited Bariatric Center

Quality Care You Can Count On

Our Bariatric Surgery Program center has been accredited as a Comprehensive Center under the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP®), a joint program of the American College of Surgeons (ACS) and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS).

This means our program is recognized for achieving the highest national standards in patient safety and quality care—standards our weight loss surgery team pursued and then sustained over a decade. According to a recent study published in the Journal of the American College of Surgeons, patients who undergo weight loss operations at accredited bariatric surgical centers do better and have fewer postoperative complications.
