A MBSAQIP Accredited - Comprehensive Center 

St. Vincent's Medical Center is an approved Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program through the American College of Surgeons and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery. The program accredits inpatient and outpatient bariatric surgery centers in North America that have undergone an independent, voluntary, and rigorous peer evaluation in accordance with nationally recognized bariatric surgical standards. Bariatric surgery accreditation not only promotes uniform standard benchmarks, but also supports continuous quality improvement.


St. Vincent’s Medical Center has been named as one of America’s Best Hospitals for Bariatric Surgery by the Women’s Choice Award®, America’s trusted referral source for the best in healthcare. The award signifies that St. Vincent’s Medical Center is in the top of the 4,542 U.S. hospitals reviewed.

The methodology for the bariatric surgery award is unique in that it combines national accreditations, Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) survey results and hospital outcome scores with primary research about women’s healthcare preferences.

It is the only award recognizing excellence in bariatric surgery based on robust criteria that consider patient satisfaction and clinical excellence.
