About the ACS BSCN Accreditation
The ACS BSCN Accreditation Program was established by the American College of Surgeons in 2005 in an effort to extend established quality improvement practices to all disciplines of surgical care. Accreditation confirms that a bariatric surgery center has demonstrated its commitment to providing the highest quality care for its bariatric surgery patients.
The American College of Surgeons is a scientific and educational association of surgeons that was founded in 1913 to raise the standards of surgical education and practice and to improve the care of the surgical patient. Its achievements have placed it at the forefront of American surgery and have made the College an important advocate for all surgical patients. The College has more than 77,000 members and is the largest organization of surgeons in the world.
