Award Winning Bariatric Surgery Care
Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Rhode Island named The Miriam Hospital a Blue Distinction Center+ for bariatric surgery for its expertise and cost efficiency in care delivery in 2020. Blue Distinction Specialty Care is a national program that recognizes health care providers who demonstrate exceptional expertise in particular specialties, so that patients seeking treatment can find the quality and value they desire.
Once again, the Center for Bariatric Surgery has been accredited by the American College of Surgeons in conjunction with the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery. The Lifespan Center for Bariatric Surgery has been noted for its long-term successes as well as outstanding care that is designed specifically for each patient. This patient-centric approach has led, once again, to the center achieving dual re-accreditation in 2017 for both adult and adolescent surgery. It was also previously certified in 2015.
Optum Centers of Excellence accreditation was given to the Center for Bariatric Surgery in 2019, because the center achieves positive patient outcomes as well as cost effectiveness.
