We share this distinction with such prestigious medical centers as Princeton University Healthcare, New York University, University of California San Diego, UCLA, Washington University, Mount Sinai Hospital, and George Washington University among others.
As one of the first International Centers of Excellence outside the United States, it means that our weight loss surgery patients receive exclusive and unparalleled care in the most advanced facilities. This designation is awarded after a series of rigorous onsite reviews over a year-long period where every facet of the practice, the staff, the surgeons, and the facilities is examined by experts in the medical field to ensure that only the highest standards are consistently maintained. Very few international hospitals achieve this status, and many American hospitals do not.
As a result of this designation, patients are assured that they will not be sharing their environment with diseased patients or infectious diseases common in other hospitals that are not fully specialized in weight loss surgery. The Center has also passed the highest standards of excellence established in the United States that equate to safe and effective weight loss procedure.
Because of our highly specialized environment we have a redundancy in all the necessary state of the art equipment and expert staff to meet any need the weight-loss surgery patient may require. Our pristine and modern facility is only surpassed by our compassionate English-speaking staff that takes care of patients every step of the way.
Unlike other facilities, our nursing staff and doctors will be taking care of you and only you. That’s because our entire hospital is dedicated to offering weight loss procedures within the highest levels of safety, in fact exceeding all U.S. standards for surgery… all in a relaxing, reassuring environment.
Our critical care unit is fully equipped including an on-staff critical care doctor that evaluates every patient before surgery. Both our staff and hospital are of the highest quality in every respect.
