The MBSAQIP accredits inpatient and outpatient bariatric surgery centers in the United States and Canada that undergo a voluntary and rigorous peer evaluation, in accordance with nationally recognized bariatric surgical standards.
This accreditation is a reflection of our commitment to providing exceptional care for patients seeking laparoscopic gastric banding, gastric bypass and gastric sleeve bariatric surgical weight loss procedures.
In 2012, the American College of Surgeons signed a memorandum of understanding with the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) to unify their respective bariatric surgery center accreditation programs. As of April 2012, all institutions that met the standards under the two separate programs—the ACS Bariatric Surgery Center Network (ACS BSCN) program and the ASMBS Bariatric Centers of Excellence (ASMBS BSCOE) program—were extended accreditation in the joint Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP). The new, joint program is administered by the staff and committees of the ACS and all centers now submit data to the existing ACS bariatric data registry.
