The Kingston Bariatric Centre of Excellence is located at Hotel Dieu Hospital.  The only bariatric assessment service between Ottawa and Toronto, the Kingston Bariatric Centre of Excellence serves patients who require assessment and treatment for obesity and morbid obesity, and translates into easier access to care closer to home.

Committed to patient and family-centered care, the Centre provides the following programs:

  • Surgical:  high quality pre-surgical assessment and post-surgical follow-up services for adults requiring weight loss surgery
  • Medical Weight Management (non-surgical):  for individuals who do not qualify for surgery, do not want to pursue surgery at this time or who do not have a significant history of past weight management attempts.

A leader in academic ambulatory care, Hotel Dieu has the multi-disciplinary expertise required to care for people living with obesity plus key complementary programs associated with the co-morbidities of obesity including diabetes education, cardiac wellness and endocrinology. The synergy of these combined programs translates into quality care for patients and families.
