Regional Leaders in Bariatric Surgery.
We have received the Healthgrades® Bariatric Surgery Excellence Award and the Excellence Award for seven years in a row (2012-2018). Our facility is the only one in Miami-Dade County to have received this top honor, meaning you can be assured that you are receiving weight loss surgery at a top hospital. Patients who have weight loss surgery at our facility also show to have a lower risk of experiencing a complication during their hospital stay.
Accredited for Our Quality
We have been accredited by the American College of Surgeons and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery as part of their Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program. Facilities that have been accredited by this program have undergone a rigorous review process, which includes a thorough assessment of our facility, staff, and standards of care. Achieving this accreditation demonstrates our commitment to excellent patient care and outcomes, our use of the latest proven surgical techniques, and our leadership in the field of bariatrics.
