Bariatric Center of Excellence
In August 2017, Community Hospital achieved the high honor of being identified as a ‘Bariatric Center of Excellence’. The surgical weight loss program at Community Hospital meets all criteria for this designation according to national quality standards established to deliver safe, high quality bariatric patient care.
Community Hospital is the only hospital on the Western Slope and one of only five hospitals in the state to hold the adolescent accreditation designation. Patients seeking surgical treatment for severe obesity and its related conditions have a high-quality choice for receiving treatment at a nationally accredited program that meets the highest standards for patient safety and quality of care.
