Florida Medical Center is the First in Broward County to Earn Bariatric and Robotic Surgery Accreditation from Surgical Review Corporation

Florida Medical Center is the first hospital in Broward County to achieve accreditation as a Center of Excellence in Bariatric and Robotic Surgery by Surgical Review Corporation (SRC). The Bariatric and Robotic Center of Excellence Accreditation distinguishes this hospital for providing the highest quality of care to its patients as determined by an independent, external process of evaluation. Status as an accredited organization means Florida Medical Center meets nationally recognized standards.

This process includes physicians, nurses, and administrators who are actively involved in the accredited program. The inspection is consultative and educational, presenting best practices to help an organization improve its care and services.
