HealthGrades #1 Ranking

A study from HealthGrades, the nation’s leading independent health care ratings organization, finds that Newton-Wellesley Hospital has been ranked best in the state of Massachusetts for bariatric surgery, and has received the 2010/2011 Bariatric Surgery Excellence Award™ and a top five-star rating, for the fifth consecutive year. Newton-Wellesley’s bariatric program also ranks among the top five percent in the nation for the second year in a row, according to HealthGrades.

This latest honor isn’t the first time Newton-Wellesley’s Bariatric Surgery Program has been recognized. The Hospital was recognized by Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts with a Blue Distinction® Designation for making a difference in health care outcomes and value in the area of bariatric surgery. Newton-Wellesley Hospital received accreditation as a Level 1A Bariatric Surgery Center from the American College of Surgeons (ACS), the highest level of accreditation a center can receive. 

The Center for Weight Loss Surgery at Newton-Wellesley focuses on a multidisciplinary approach, which has been in place since the inception of the program at the Hospital. This approach has made Newton-Wellesley Hospital a leader in bariatric surgery for the past 14+. The surgeons have had great success with the program and average approximately 400 surgeries a year with a 95 percent success rate, which is defined as a patient who loses 65 percent of his or her excess weight and maintains that weight loss. The comprehensive approach combines surgery with nutrition education and counseling, psychological counseling and referrals, peer support groups, long-term medical follow up and state-of-the-art hospital services.
