Date:11/15/2011

IRVING, Texas, Nov. 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Novation, the leading health care supply contracting company, announces the release of its 2011 Bariatric Report, a nationwide survey of VHA Inc. and UHC member hospitals.  The results confirm that while hospitals continue to see an increase in morbidly obese patients, hospitals are also expanding the services, supplies and training needed to serve this patient population.

Of the responding facilities, 58 percent of the respondents saw an increase in admissions of morbidly obese patients in the past 18 months.

"These hospitals have continued to see a rise in admissions of obese patients and treatment costs since our last survey in June 2010," said Cathy Denning, vice president, sourcing operations at Novation. "At the same time, they are also putting the resources and training in place to provide quality care for the specific needs of these patients."

Key Findings:

  • 41% of the respondents indicate that they have bariatric surgery programs in their facilities.  Of those, 94% of the respondents indicate that their facilities offer gastric banding surgery. 78% of the respondents have seen an increase in the number of bariatric-related reconstructive surgeries over the last 18 months.
  • When asked about bariatric outpatient programs in member facilities, 53% have a fitness program in their facilities, 61% have a weight loss program and 62% have a counseling program.
  • When asked whether they rent or purchase equipment to accommodate morbidly obese patients, the majority of the member facilities purchased most types of bariatric equipment, and almost half of respondents (48%) rented/leased beds.
  • Beds also account for the highest total costs and/or the greatest increase in bariatric product spending at member facilities.
  • 61% of the respondents indicate that their facilities provide special meals/supplements for morbidly obes
