Tucson, AZ, August 9, 2017 – Carondelet St. Mary’s Hospital has received full accreditation as a comprehensive bariatric facility by the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP) of the American College of Surgeons and American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery.

Seal of MBSAQIPMBSAQIP accreditation demonstrates the commitment by The Surgical Weight Loss Center at St. Mary's Hospital to delivering the highest-quality care for bariatric surgery patients.

To earn MBSAQIP accreditation, Carondelet St. Mary’s Hospital met the essential criteria that ensure its ability to support a bariatric surgical care program and measure up to the institutional performance requirements outlined by the MBSAQIP accreditation standards.

Accredited bariatric surgery centers provide both the hospital resources necessary for optimal care of obese patients and the support and resources necessary to address the entire spectrum of care and needs of bariatric patients, both pre- and post-operatively.

"We are very pleased to receive accreditation from the American College of Surgeons," says  Amy Beiter, MD, CEO of St. Mary’s Hospital. "Accreditation is an important way for patients to verify that a hospital has access to all the key resources necessary for optimal care, and we are proud to be acknowledged here for our excellence at Carondelet St. Mary’s Hospital."

In the United States, more than two-thirds of the population suffer from obesity, and the numbers continue to increase. Obesity increases the risks of morbidity and mortality because of the diseases and conditions that are commonly associated with it, such as type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and cardiovascular disease, among other health risks. At present, weight loss surgery provides the only effective, lasting relief from severe obesity.

**Weight loss surgery is generally designed for those with a body mass index (BMI) equal to or greater than 40, or equal to or greater than 35 with serious co-morbidities. Laparoscopic adjustable gastric banding with the Lap Band® is also FDA-approved for weight loss surgery in people with a BMI of 30 to 35 who have at least one obesity-related condition. Weight loss surgery is considered safe, but like many types of surgery, it does have risks. Consult with your physician about the risks and benefits of weight loss surgery.
