Bariatric Surgery Program Recognized for Providing High Quality Care
For demonstrating a commitment to providing the highest quality of care for its patients, the joint surgical weight loss program at Scripps Green Hospital and Scripps Clinic Center for Weight Management was accredited by the American College of Surgeons Bariatric Surgery Center Network (ACS BSCN).
Accredited facilities provide not only the hospital services necessary for optimal care of morbidly obese patients, but also the comprehensive resources and support that are necessary to address the entire spectrum of care —from the pre-hospital phase through post-operative care.
Bariatric surgery centers accredited by the ACS have undergone an independent, voluntary, and rigorous peer evaluation in accordance with nationally recognized bariatric surgical standards. The designation of our program is a sign of high-quality surgical care, as evidenced by the documentation of performance indicators and the measurement of outcomes.
