Bariatric Surgery Center Achieves Level One Accreditation

In 2010, Upper Chesapeake Bariatric Surgery, designated as a Center of Excellence by the American College of Surgeons, was accredited as a Level 1 accreditation by the Bariatric Surgery Center Network (BSCN) Accreditation Program of the American College of Surgeons (ACS). Accredited bariatric surgery centers provide not only the hospital resources necessary for optimal care of morbidly obese patients, but also the support and resources that are necessary to address the entire spectrum of care and needs of bariatric patients, from the pre-hospital phase through the postoperative care and treatment process.
