Aetna Institute of Quality® Bariatric Surgery Facility

The Aetna Institutes are a network of
high-performing hospitals, clinics and
healthcare facilities that offer specialized care.

The Crozer-Keystone Bariatric Surgery Program at Crozer-Chester Medical Center has been designated an Aetna Institute of Quality® Bariatric Surgery Facility for treating individuals living with morbid, or extreme, obesity.

Aetna makes information about the quality and cost of healthcare services available to its members to help them make informed decisions about their healthcare needs. In line with this goal, Aetna recognizes hospitals and facilities in its network that offer specialized clinical services for certain health conditions. Facilities are selected for consistently delivering evidence-based, safe care.

“We are proud to be recognized as an Aetna Institute of Quality Bariatric Surgery Facility. It confirms the great work that our excellent team does every day to help our patients’ live healthier lives,” says Leon Katz, M.D., medical director of the Bariatric Surgery Program. “Bariatric surgery is the most effective treatment for morbidly obese patients, but being able to offer this service to our community safely and effectively requires a strong commitment from our health system as well as the expertise and experience of a range of healthcare professionals.”

The Crozer-Keystone Comprehensive Bariatric Surgery program recently expanded services to Delaware County Memorial Hospital (DCMH).
