The MBSAQIP standards, “Optimal Resources for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery,” ensure that metabolic and bariatric patients receive multidisciplinary medical care, which improves patient outcomes and long-term success. MBSAQIP-accredited centers offer preoperative and postoperative care designed specifically for patients with obesity.

“The accreditation reflects our team’s shared commitment to quality and patient safety,” said physician Keneth N. Hall II, Rome Health’s medical director. “In our final report, the surveyor noted that the dedication to patient care and patient management is readily apparent and everyone involved with the bariatric program has a sense of ownership of the patients under their care, extending across the entire spectrum of care.”

To earn MBSAQIP accreditation, Rome Health met essential criteria for staffing, training, facility infrastructure and patient care pathways, ensuring its ability to support patients with obesity. The center also participates in a national data registry that yields semiannual reports on the quality of its surgical outcomes and identifying opportunities for quality improvement.

The MBSAQIP standards, “Optimal Resources for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery,” are published by the ACS and the ASMBS.
