San Martín Makes's list of Best Hospitals for Bariatric Surgery

The San Martín Campus is included as one of only 101 hospitals in the U.S. on’s first-ever Best Hospitals for Bariatric Surgery list. In partnership with The Leapfrog Group, an independent national nonprofit that serves as a voice for health care consumers, announced the Best Hospitals for Bariatric Surgery list in January 2023.

The 101 hospitals that earned this distinction achieve Leapfrog’s standards for safety, keeping patients safe from errors, infections, and complications, and performing enough procedures to give patients the best odds of a good outcome.

Tom Burns, San Martín Hospital’s Interim President and CEO, said, “This distinction from two highly respected national organizations is indeed an honor. Combined with San Martin’s recent accreditation by the American College of Surgeons and the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery, we hope our team can gain the trust and confidence of southern Nevadans who are considering the benefits of one of the procedures we are able to offer.”
