Bariatric Centers of Accreditation

Why Choose a Mercy Bariatric Center?

Most of Mercy’s Bariatric programs have achieved prestigious accreditation through either:

  • The Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP), a joint program by the American College of Surgeons (ACS) and The American Society of Metabolic Surgeons (ASMBS)
  • The Surgical Review Corporation (SRC)

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.

Basically, 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.
