Accredited Bariatric Centers
The Accredited Bariatric Centers located on the campus of Brookwood Baptist and Princeton Baptist Medical Center are committed to providing a high-quality bariatric program in central Alabama. With an interdisciplinary patient-focused approach for
treating obesity, our team improves health, reduces life-threatening co-morbidities, increases self-esteem, and improves quality of life.
"The American College of Surgeons and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery combined their respective national bariatric surgery accreditation programs into a single unified program to achieve one national accreditation standard for
bariatric surgery centers, the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP).
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."Source: MBSAQIP
