Mercy Bariatric Centers of Accreditation

Why Choose a Mercy Bariatric Center?

Most of Mercy’s Bariatric programs have achieved prestigious accreditation through various programs. An accreditation signifies a level of excellence in the field of bariatric medicine that means better outcomes for patients. Some insurance carriers require that you have your surgery at an accredited center, but it’s a good idea even if your insurance does not require it. Our bariatric centers are accredited by:

The Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery Accreditation & Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP) - a joint program by the American College of Surgeons (ACS) and The American Society of Metabolic Surgeons (ASMBS)

Accreditated Bariatric Centers at Mercy

Centers go through a rigorous reporting and inspection process to become accredited. Along with having certain types of equipment and training geared towards the bariatric patient, they also have to perform a minimum number of bariatric procedures annually to maintain their standing.
