The Saint Francis Center for Surgical Weight Loss has received a designation as an Aetna Institute of Quality. With this recognition, Saint Francis continues to be a part of the nationwide Aetna Institutes of Quality (IOQ) Bariatric Surgery Network. This designation is based on measures of clinical performance, access and efficiency for bariatric surgery. "This is an exciting re-designation from Aetna," said Leslie Albers, RN, Program Manager. "We know we give excellent care to our patients but it is always great to have our efforts confirmed by this level of national recognition." Saint Francis Hospital-Memphis congratulates center medical director and bariatric surgeon Jenny Weaver, MD and all her staff on achieving this notable honor.
