Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence 

Safe and Quality Care

The Weight Loss Surgery Program at Baylor Carrollton is a designated Bariatric Center of Excellence. Faced with clinical evidence that the most experienced and best-run bariatric surgery programs have by far the lowest rates of complications, the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement  Program (MBSAQIP) was created to recognize bariatric surgery centers that perform well and to help surgeons and hospitals continue to improve the quality and safety of care provided. 

Approved Facility for Weight Loss Surgery

Not only does this distinction recognize the quality of care, but also qualifies our program to be recognized as an approved facility for Weight Loss Surgery by the following insurance companies:

  • Aetna Institute of Quality for Bariatric Surgery
  • Blue Cross Blue Shield Blue of Texas Distinction Center® for Bariatric Surgery
  • Cigna-Certified Hospital for Bariatric Surgery
  • United Health Care OptumHealth Clinical Sciences Institute Bariatric Centers of Excellence network (COE)

When considering Bariatric Surgery, be sure to ask if the surgical facility is a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence. You deserve the best care available.

Note: Designation as Blue Distinction Centers® means these facilities' overall experience and aggregate data met objective criteria established in collaboration with expert clinicians' and leading professional organizations' recommendations. Individual outcomes may vary. To find out which services are covered under your policy at any facilities, please call your local Blue Cross and/or Blue Shield Plan.
