A Designated Comprehensive Center
The ProMedica Toledo Hospital Metabolic and Bariatric Center is designated and accredited as a Comprehensive Center by The American College of Surgeons (ACS) and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS). This means the center has demonstrated compliance with all MBSAQIP Core standards, successfully completed a site visit and met several other accreditation criteria.
What are MBSAQIP Core standards?
The American College of Surgeons (ACS) and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) combined their respective national bariatric surgery accreditation programs into a single unified program to achieve one national accreditation standard for bariatric surgery centers, the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP).
MBSAQIP works to advance safe, high-quality care for bariatric surgical patients through the accreditation of bariatric surgical centers. A bariatric surgical center achieves accreditation following a rigorous review process during which it proves that it can maintain certain physical resources, human resources, and standards of practice. All accredited centers report their outcomes to the MBSAQIP database.
