Surgery Program A ‘Center of Excellence’


The American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) has designated St. Francis Hospital a nationally accredited surgical weight loss center. The MBSAQIP distinction, which stands for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgical Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program, recognizes St. Francis for providing safe, high quality care for patients.

A bariatric surgery program has to undergo rigorous review to achieve accreditation as a center of excellence. Qualifying measures include proving that it can maintain the necessary resources and standards of practice to assure that patients get the best care. All accredited centers are required to report patient outcomes to the MBSAQIP database.
