Comprehensive Center Accreditation

Bariatric Awards & Accreditations

Phoebe Bariatrics is an accredited comprehensive bariatric surgery center with a goal of long-term success for our patients.  We provide far more than just hospital resources for optimal care of morbidly obese patients. Our center also offers the support and resources necessary to address the entire spectrum of a bariatric patients’ care and needs—from the pre-hospital phase through the post bariatric surgery care and treatment process.

Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accredited Center

The American College of Surgeons (ACS) and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) combined their respective national bariatric surgery accreditation programs into a single unified program to achieve one national accreditation standard for bariatric surgery centers, the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP). 

MBSAQIP works to advance safe, high-quality care for bariatric surgical patients through the accreditation of bariatric surgical centers. A bariatric surgical center achieves accreditation following a rigorous review process during which it proves that it can maintain certain physical resources, human resources, and standards of practice. All accredited centers report their outcomes to the MBSAQIP database.

Attaining the MBSAQIP designation demonstrates our uncompromising commitment to quality and ensures that our bariatric program has met the  highest standards of the highest governing body of bariatric surgery.
