Franciscan Center for Weight Management at CHI Franciscan Health

If you’ve struggled with weight loss, you know there are no easy answers. For many people, eating less and exercising more may not be enough to reach healthy weight goals. At Franciscan Center for Weight Management, we can help you achieve lasting results and discover a happier, healthier you. Our expert physicians and staff offer advanced surgical options for successful weight loss.

Attend a free seminar on weight loss

Take the first step: Sign up to attend a free seminar on our minimally invasive options for weight loss (bariatric) surgery. Our seminars provide an opportunity for you to meet a surgeon, a member of the care team and a surgery patient who will tell his/her story. Your questions will be answered during a question-and-answer period, and our team will discuss insurance requirements and coverage, the differences between surgical procedures, pre- and post-surgery education, how quickly you’ll return to work, managing nutrition and ongoing support.

Why Franciscan Center for Weight Management?

We can help you reach your weight loss goals and live a healthy, active life. Beginning with your first consultation, our team works with you to assess your needs and develop a plan to meet them. We offer all the major types of bariatric surgery, including:

Not only do we perform the most robotic-assisted gastric bypass surgeries statewide, but we also have one of the lowest complication rates in Washington, which means you can trust in our track record of success. St. Francis Hospital, home of Franciscan Center for Weight Management, is accredited through the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP) as a Bariatric Surgery Center of Excellence and multiple insurance companies have designated us as their preferred provider.
