Enhance Your Lifestyle
From the moment you connect with the Ascension St. John Weight Loss Program, a supportive, nurturing team will work with you to achieve your weigh loss goals. As your partner, we'll develop a customized plan that could include non-surgical or surgical weight loss procedures. We offer this program at both our Ascension St. John location in Tulsa and our Ascension Jane Phillips location in Bartlesville.
Ascension St. John is accredited by the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program, a joint program of the American College of Surgeons and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery. Learn more about our accreditation.
The Journey To a New You
Our weight loss management program is a step-by-step process, and our caring ministry staff will guide and support you through every step of your journey. As you start to evaluate different weight loss options, think about what’s inspiring you. Whether it’s your friends, family or something else, it will be the constant throughout your journey. Assess your eligibility and watch stories of others just like you who have committed to a healthier life.
"My weight loss journey has completely changed my life. I feel so much better going out and spending time with my family and friends. I love being able to keep up with my grandchildren without feeling tired all the time."
