Ministry Saint Michael’s Hospital/Calvin Selwyn MD designated as COEMBS

(Stevens Point, WI) -  Calvin A Selwyn, MD and Ministry Saint Michael’s Hospital in Stevens Point recently received designation as a Center of Excellence in Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (COEMBS). The COEMBS program recognizes surgeons and facilities who demonstrate a track record of excellent outcomes in bariatric surgery.  The program is structured to recognize bariatric surgery providers who continuously improve care, quality and patient safety. 

“Earning the Center of Excellence designation signifies our commitment to offer the safest, highest-quality care to bariatric surgery patients,” said Calvin A. Selwyn, Jr., MD, Fellowship Trained Bariatric Surgeon and Bariatric Medical Director at Ministry Medical Group Bariatric Surgery Department.  “With morbid obesity on the rise, we want to make sure Ministry Bariatric Surgery Program was positioned to help people suffering from obesity and related health conditions.  By achieving this designation it recognizes our commitment to quality care.”

In preparation of our COEMBS, Ministry Saint Michael’s Hospital made a variety of critical amendments including the creation of two rooms designed specifically for bariatric surgery patients and other patients requiring additional space.  Each of the private rooms have doorways that open wider if needed and extra sturdy bathroom fixtures.  The furniture throughout the facility is well- built and generously sized for added comfort and safety. 

Dr. Selwyn has performed more than 1000 bariatric procedures over the past decade.  “We are proud of our comprehensive team including nurses, psychologists, registered dietitian, and exercise specialist.  We provide an environment where patients can expect quality service, compassionate care and personal respect.” 

Ministry Medical Group Bariatric Surgery is able to offer patients bariatric surgery regardless of their insurance.  For more information or to register for an upcoming bariatric informational meeting please visit or call 877-295-5868.
