Bariatric Surgery Program Accreditation 
Morton Hospital's Bariatric Surgery Program is accredited as a low-acuity center by the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP) certified by the American College of Surgeons and American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery. The MBSAQIP accreditation sets national standards for bariatric surgery centers with a goal of advancing safe and high-quality care for bariatric surgery patients. This voluntary yet rigorous accreditation process for bariatric surgery centers consists of regularly maintaining specific physical resources, human resources and standards of practice, and reporting these outcomes to the MBSAQIP database. 

In 2021 and 2022, we were named "Best Weight Loss Center" in the "Best of the Best" Community Choice Awards for the Metro South region.
