MBSAQIP Accredited Comprehensive Center

The Bariatric Center at Chapman is designated as a MBSAQIP Accredited Comprehensive Center. Bariatrics is that field of medicine that deals with all the factors involved in obesity. In order to achieve this designation, the Bariatric Center at Chapman was evaluated against strict standards that measured the completeness of our programs, the quality and safety of our outcomes, the equipment used for bariatric procedures, and all parts of the facility that are involved in treating bariatric surgery patients. All the elements that facilitate excellence in performance and outcomes must be in place including a requirement for all medical personnel to be experienced and adept at treating morbidly obese patients. Only those facilities that meet or exceed the established criteria are accredited by MBSAQIP. We are proud to be one of them.

Why Accreditation is Important?

Accreditation means that you have the assurance from an independent certifying body that you will receive quality care in a quality setting focused on quality results. Although bariatric procedures have been performed since 1954, guidelines were not established until 1991. Since then, the number of procedures has increased exponentially but outcomes were inconsistent due to a lack of organized information on patient selection, procedure methods and optimal surgical approaches. With accreditation benchmarks for safety and quality have been established and facilities can now be certified as meeting the highest standard of care.

The Bariatric Center at Chapman is able to assure you that every care has been taken to ensure that your experience will be conducted by the most professional resources available to get the most positive outcome for you.
