Bariatric Surgery at PRMC
Peninsula Regional Medical Center has earned recognition for its surgical weight-loss program. After meeting stringent quality criteria, it has been designated as a Blue Distinction Center for Bariatric Surgery®. This helps consumers identify facilities that meet quality-focused criteria at national and local levels.
The Hospital is also accredited by the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP).
Earning this accreditation required independent, voluntary and rigorous peer evaluation in accordance with nationally recognized bariatric surgical standards. The Center regularly reports bariatric surgical outcomes data to the MBSAQIP Database, and benchmarks itself against other bariatric surgery centers to ensure that outcomes are aligned with national standards.
