Monroe’s only accredited bariatric program

Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Louisiana recognized P&S Surgical Hospital—home to Louisiana Center for Weight Loss Surgery—as a Blue Distinction® Center+ for Bariatric Surgery. LCWLS has also been designated a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence® by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery. To earn the Center of Excellence designation, LCWLS underwent a series of site inspections during which all aspects of the program’s surgical processes were closely examined. These quality standards mean low infection rates and excellent clinical outcomes for our patients. In addition, Optum, a subsidiary of United Health Group, recognized P&S Surgical Hospital as a Center of Excellence in the area of Bariatric Surgery.
