Weight Loss Specialists has been named a Center of Excellence from the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP).
MBSAQIP is a joint program from The American College of Surgeons (ACS) and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) to advance the care of bariatric patients and ensure accredited surgical centers are providing the highest standards for all patients.
The process for achieving this accreditation was very involved and included many requirements as well as an on-site inspection of the surgical facility at Iowa Specialty Hospital in Belmond. Since we opened in July 2014, our team has been dedicated to providing excellence to our patients in the form of resources, inpatient and outpatient facilities, and support, so this is truly a reflection of our team’s commitment to exceeding our patients’ expectations.
Our first and foremost concern is our patients. While our current patients know of our high-quality standards, the importance of this accreditation is to ensure our future patients and referral partners know and understand that we perform our services to the highest standards and offer the best facilities and patient satisfaction.
This accreditation not only reflects our programs, but our team as well, so we want to take a moment to thank them for helping us achieve this honor and helping our patients achieve their weight loss goals. Their hard work, dedication and above-and-beyond attitude is what makes Iowa Weight Loss Specialists truly special. This accreditation will also allow our team to continue to further their education to give our patients even more resources and insights into weight loss advancements.
