Grand View Health Weight Management Program earns national accreditation

Posted

Grand View Health Weight Management has earned national accreditation from the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP).

This accreditation signifies that Grand View Health meets national quality standards to deliver safe, high-quality metabolic and bariatric patient care.

Grand View Health is officially accredited as a MBSAQIP Comprehensive Center with Obesity Medicine Qualifications Center by the MBSAQIP, a joint quality program of the American College of Surgeons (ACS) and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS).

The MBSAQIP Standards, Optimal Resources for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery, ensure that metabolic and bariatric patients receive multidisciplinary medical care, which improves patient outcomes and long-term success. MBSAQIP-Accredited centers offer preoperative and postoperative care designed specifically for patients with obesity.

To earn MBSAQIP Accreditation, Grand View Health met essential criteria for staffing, training, facility infrastructure and patient care pathways, ensuring its ability to support patients with obesity.

After applying for MBSAQIP Accreditation, centers undergo an extensive site visit by an experienced bariatric surgeon who reviews the center’s structure, processes and clinical outcomes data. Centers that earn accreditation are awarded a specific designation level, depending on how many patients it serves annually, critical care capabilities, the types of procedures provided, and whether it provides care to patients under the age of 18.
