  • 29% of the respondents indicate that in the past year, they invested in the physical renovation for their facilities to accommodate morbidly obese patients. The median estimated cost of all morbidly obese-related renovations is $128,000.
  • When asked about workplace injuries in the past year related to caring for morbidly obese patients, 49% of the respondents have seen an increase while 51% have seen a decrease.
  • Of the 51% of the respondents who have seen a decrease in workplace injuries, 81% of them believe that it was due to purchasing equipment or offering training programs.

  • "Currently, Novation offers a comprehensive portfolio of the most widely used bariatric products to support member hospitals, and we continue to enhance those offerings," said Denning.  "While the treatment costs for bariatric care increase, hospitals also face the financial pressures of the economy and reduced reimbursement.  Because of this, it is more important than ever that we help the hospitals we serve continue to lower their supply costs while providing high quality care."

    Obesity is a leading preventable cause of death worldwide and authorities view it as one of the most serious public health problems of the 21st century. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, research has shown that as weight increases to reach the levels referred to as "overweight" and "obesity," the risks for conditions such as high blood pressure, heart disease, and diabetes also increase.  Additionally, the associated health problems and treatment services have a significant economic impact on the U.S. health care system.
