Valley Health Metabolic & Bariatric Program Recognized With Blue Distinction

Valley Health Metabolic & Bariatric Program Recognized With Blue Distinction

Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield has recognized Winchester Medical Center with a Blue Distinction Center+ for Bariatric Surgery designation through the Blue Distinction® Specialty Care program. This is a tremendous accomplishment for the Valley Health Metabolic & Bariatric Program team.

Valley Health’s Metabolic and Bariatric team members take a comprehensive approach to helping people achieve their ideal body weight, treating the whole person with services that include surgery, medical management, nutritional support, medication and more. The practice includes three surgeons, an endocrinologist, APCs, nutritionists, and a social worker to support those looking to make healthy lifestyle changes.

Troy Glembot, MD, MBA, CPE, FACS, FASMBS, medical director, notes that the disease of obesity affects around 64 million American adults, and achieving the Blue Distinction in Bariatric Surgery is something that makes Dr. Glembot very proud. “People trust us to take care of those who decide to have metabolic and bariatric surgery,” he explains. “Having this distinction demonstrates the fact that we want to provide the best, safest care possible”.

Blue Distinction Centers+ (BDC+) are hospitals, doctors and healthcare facilities recognized for their expertise and efficiency in delivering specialty care. BDC+ centers demonstrate affordable care in addition to quality care, treatment expertise and better overall patient results.
