Quality and accreditation
Accreditation is an expert, third-party endorsement of quality. If you're looking for the best place to get treatment, this is a great place to start.
Why accreditation matters
Accredited programs demonstrate high quality, which means you'll receive the right care for you. Our bariatric surgery program has received numerous awards for meeting the highest standard of care:
- National Accreditation from the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program, a joint program of the American College of Surgeons (ACS) and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS). The MBSAQIP Standards ensure that bariatric surgical patients receive a multidisciplinary program, not just a surgical procedure, which improves patient outcomes and long-term success.
- Designated member of the Blue Distinction Centers+ for Bariatric Surgery by BlueCross BlueShield for meeting quality selection criteria and cost of care selection criteria.
- Optum's Center of Excellence network for Bariatric Services.
- A provider of exceptional quality care by the Aetna Institutes of Quality.
