Accredited Center

WellStar Atlanta Medical Center has been recognized by The American College of Surgeons (ACS) and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS). The two programs combined their respective national bariatric surgery accreditation programs in order to achieve one national accreditation standard for bariatric centers. The collaboration created 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. All accredited centers report their outcomes to the MBSAQIP database. 

Our bariatric weight loss surgery program is also an Aetna Institute of Quality, Cigna Center of Excellence in Bariatric Surgery, and an Optum United Healthcare Center of Excellence.
