Renewed Accreditations Showcase Quality & Teamwork

Craig Castro: December 14, 20120 Comments

This fall, various departments throughout Clovis Community participated in an on-site American College of Surgeon's (ACS) Bariatric Surgery Center Network (BSCN) reaccreditation survey to renew our bariatric surgery program's accreditation. I received an email last Friday informing us that our bariatric program has received "full approval" and continues to be recognized as an accredited bariatric surgery center in the ACS's Bariatric Surgery Center Network.

I'd like to recognize Clovis Community's bariatric program medical director, Dr. Edward Felix as well as Clovis employees Mike Bartell and Kathleen King-Kaze as I realize this designation is the result of a significant TEAM effort. I am grateful to each of you and many others as this latest survey showcased, again, the exceptional teamwork between physicians, staff and management. Thank you for all of your great work, especially for the quality care provided to Clovis bariatric patients. Visit our bariatric surgery program website at

And, Clovis Community's IVF laboratory also recently received reaccreditation status. The recent survey by The Joint Commission was successful and validates once again that our embryology lab meets the highest standards. This reaccreditation speaks to the dedication, teamwork and pursuit of excellence that characterizes Clovis Community. I am exceptionally proud of our entire IVF team of physicians and staff for this achievement. Visit our fertility program website at
