The center has14 private rooms dedicated for weight loss surgery patients. The unit is completely designed around the special needs of a weight loss surgery patient, addressing every consideration: wider doorways, larger bathrooms, private rooms, ceiling fans, 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. Each bed is equipped with an over-bed patient helper to make it easier for patients to move themselves. 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 Internet access, flat screen TVs, and special recliners for the extra comfort of bariatric patients.
