TMC Bariatric Surgery
In 2012, the American College of Surgeons and the American Society for Metabolic and the Bariatric Surgery 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.
The American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence was started in 2004 to advance the safety and efficiency of bariatric and metabolic surgical care. Surgical Review Corp. administers the program on behalf of the ASMBS.
The center-of-excellence designation is only awarded to surgical programs with a demonstrated track record of favorable outcomes in bariatric surgery and allows reimbursement from major health insurers including Medicare and Medicaid.
"Earning the designation signifies our ability to consistently deliver the safest, highest quality care to bariatric surgery patients," said Judy Rich, TMC president and CEO. "But most importantly, it recognizes our dedication to improving the overall health of our community."
