Bariatrics Center Earns Reaccreditation

The Bariatrics Center at Nebraska Medicine was recently awarded the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP) Center of Excellence.

“The MBSAQIP designation is an important program certification, because it shows our commitment to the care of the bariatric patient,” says Corrigan McBride, MD, Bariatrics Center medical director.

MBSAQIP works to advance safe, high-quality care for bariatric surgical patients through the accreditation of bariatric surgical centers. A bariatric surgical center achieves accreditation following a rigorous review process during which it proves that it can maintain certain physical resources, human resources and standards of practice. The hospital is reviewed every three years to ensure it has all the equipment, personnel and resources to care for patients.

“As part of the review process, we track all our patients for their quality outcomes,” says Dr. McBride. “The process shows our dedication to continuously improving the care of our bariatric surgery patients.”
