Why Miami Valley Hospital?
The Miami Valley Hospital (MVH) Weight Loss Surgery Center is accredited by the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP). The MBSAQIP accredits inpatient and outpatient bariatric surgery centers in the United States that have undergone an independent, voluntary and rigorous peer evaluation in accordance with nationally recognized bariatric surgical standards. The MVH Weight Loss Surgery Center in Dayton was founded in 2006.
Our team performs all types of open and laparoscopic weight loss surgery, also known as bariatric surgery, recognized by the American Society of Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery. These include:
The Center has 14 private rooms dedicated to weight loss surgery patients. The unit is completely designed around their special needs, addressing every consideration: wider doorways, larger bathrooms, private rooms and a comfortable environment with quality care.
Patients have access to special beds that are designed to be comfortable for patients up to 1,000 pounds. As weight loss surgery patients often feel too warm, each room has a ceiling fan.
These rooms are very appealing to both patients and families. Special amenities include computer and wireless Internet access, flat screen TVs and special recliners for the extra comfort of our bariatric patients.
