Patients seeking weight-loss surgery have a top-tier choice at Sarasota Memorial Hospital, now a nationally accredited program that meets the highest standards for patient safety and quality of care. SMH’s Bariatric & Metabolic Health Center has been accredited as a higher level “Comprehensive Center” under the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP), a joint program of the American College of Surgeons and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery. The designation signifies that the SMH bariatric team meets the highest standards established in the nation for the care of bariatric patients and that its surgeons have the specialized skills, experience and successful outcomes to manage patients with complex disease. As an MBSAQIP accredited center, the SMH team can treat patients beyond the age and BMI limits placed on lower acuity programs. The accreditation also provides access to treatment closer to home for people whose insurance plans require accreditation for coverage.
