Accredited Bariatric Surgery Programs

When you receive care at one of our hospitals, you are receiving care from an accredited bariatric surgery program.

MBSAQIP Accreditation

MBSAQIP AccreditationThe reason this is important is because the national medical society assessing these programs requires that hospitals meet rigorous standards of quality and patient safety. A bariatric surgery center achieves accreditation after an intense review process during which it proves it can maintain certain physical resources, human resources and standards of practice.

All accredited centers report their outcomes to the database of the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP). MBSAQIP combines  the exceptional standards of the American College of Surgeons and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery into a unified process to create one national accreditation standard for bariatric surgery centers.
