Syosset Hospital

Northwell Health Physician Partners Bariatric Surgery at Syosset Hospital has been accredited once again as a comprehensive center for weight-loss surgery. Certification comes from the American College of Surgeons Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP), which reviews disease specific programs every three years.

Syosset Hospital’s bariatric program was evaluated on quality improvement and safety efforts for metabolic and bariatric surgery patients. The MBSAQIP assessed that the program provided multi-disciplinary, high quality patient-centered care.

“The success of the program lies in the collaborative nature of our practice,” said Heather McMullen, MD, director of bariatric surgery at Syosset Hospital. “Our comprehensive care includes: consultation, follow-up visits with nutritionists, psychologists and clinical staff. Patients are also encouraged to attend pre- and post-surgical education classes and support groups. We keep the focus on the patient throughout the process, so that they are motivated and equipped to achieve long term successful outcomes.”

Syosset Hospital’s bariatric program is a state-of-the-art practice with board-certified surgeons, as well as gastroenterologists, cardiologists, pulmonologists, nutritionists, specially trained nurses and fitness consultants.
