Holston Valley’s weight center reaccredited

September 26th, 2011 5:11 pm by Staff Report

Holston Valley Medical Center’s Comprehensive Weight Management Center has been designated as a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence for another three years. Site reviewers from the National Surgical Review Corp. recently visited Holston Valley to renew its designation.
In addition to the hospital and the weight management center, the accreditation includes Dr. Andrew Kramer, the center’s medical director, and Surgical Associates of Kingsport. The renewed designation from the national organization not only grants the hospital and its weight management center international recognition of quality health care but is also required for bariatric surgery to be covered by Medicare.
