Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence
El Camino Hospital’s Bariatric Weight Loss Surgery Program has been designated an American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence.
To earn a Center of Excellence designation, El Camino Hospital's bariatric surgery program had to undergo a series of site inspections during which all aspects of the program's surgical processes were closely examined and data on health outcomes were collected. For more information about this designation visit the American Society for Metabolic & Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS) website.
Blue Distinction Center for Bariatric Surgery
The Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield companies have designated El Camino Hospital's Mountain View campus as a Blue Distinction Center for Bariatric Surgery. The designation means the hospital has demonstrated expertise in delivering quality health care.
The criteria used to select a hospital for this quality designation is determined with input from leading medical organizations and expert physicians and is based on medical evidence. The outcomes from each center are made available to the public to help consumers find quality specialty care on a consistent basis and to encourage providers to improve the overall quality and delivery of health care, resulting in better overall outcomes for patients.
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 Anthem Blue Cross and/or Blue Shield Plan.
