Bariatric Surgery Centers

Memorial Regional Hospital, Memorial Hospital Pembroke, and Memorial Hospital West are Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP) accredited bariatric centers. We perform a high number of weight loss surgeries each year, and that experience translates to better outcomes for our patients. Because of our surgeons’ experience, patients also have fewer complications after weight surgery

To remain accredited, our hospitals undergo rigorous evaluation and reporting each year. During that process we must prove to the accrediting organization that we have great patient outcomes in weight loss surgery. We do that by providing reports on our:
