Silver Cross Hospital’s bariatric surgery program receives re-Accreditation as Center of Excellence

NEW LENOX – The American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery has awarded Silver Cross Hospital a three-year re-certification as a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence for the hospital’s weight loss surgery program. The ASMBS Center of Excellence designation recognizes programs with a demonstrated track record of favorable outcomes in bariatric weight loss surgery. 

Dr. Christopher Joyce, medical director of Silver Cross Hospital’s bariatric surgery program, performed the first traditional and laparoscopic gastric bypass surgery as well as the first adjustable gastric band and sleeve gastrectomy procedures in the southwest suburbs.

To earn a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence designation, Silver Cross underwent 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.
