The surgical weight management program at CHI Memorial is accredited as a Comprehensive Center in Bariatric Surgery with Obesity Medicine Qualifications by the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP®), a joint Quality Program of the American College of Surgeons (ACS) and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS). Our program has been accredited by the MBSAQIP since 2012.
To earn MBSAQIP Accreditation, CHI Memorial met essential criteria for staffing, training, and patient care pathways, ensuring its ability to support patients with obesity. We also participate in a national data registry that yields semiannual reports on the quality of its surgical outcomes and identifies opportunities for quality improvement. This means that you have access to some of the most effective weight-loss surgery options in the region, as well as a highly trained medical staff who truly care about helping you lose weight.
