Recognized for the Highest Level of Performance

Designation as a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence requires significant and intensive examination, quality outcomes and an infrastructure that supports the physical and emotional needs of the bariatric patient. All designated Bariatric Surgery Centers of Excellence must have:

  • A bariatric surgery coordinator
  • Staff dedicated to data entry into proprietary databases
  • Staff devoted to following up with patients long-term
  • Subscription to a database service used to track bariatric surgery outcomes

A Bariatric Center of Excellence Since 2005

To earn its Center of Excellence designation, both Wheaton Franciscan - Elmbrook Memorial Campus and the bariatric surgeons of Wheaton Franciscan Medical Group - Bariatric Institute of Wisconsin routinely undergo a series of stringent site inspections by the American Society of Bariatric Surgery (ASBS).

The ASBS Centers of Excellence program was created to recognize weight loss surgery centers that perform well and to help surgeons and hospitals continue to improve the quality and care provided. The process to earn a Center of Excellence is rigorous and extensive. To qualify, a facility must undergo site inspections and consistently meet the safety criteria, surgical processes and patient outcome standards set forth by Surgical Review Corporation (SRC), an organization committed to surgical excellence. Only those physicians and facilities whose practices and outcomes meet the stringent demands set forth by SRC and ASBS are awarded Center of Excellence status.
