BEVERLY HILLS—The New Life Surgery Center has been denied accreditation after five patients died between 2009 and 2011 from getting lap-band surgery. The surgery center is affiliated with the lap-band that promotes 1-800-GET-THIN.

 

The Joint Commission, which is the organization that denied the accreditation, reportedly warned the clinic back in 2012.

 

Canyon News reached out to the Joint Commission and a representative said that, "New Life Surgery Center received 'Denial of Accreditation,' effective August 7, 2013, which results when a health care organization has been denied accreditation after all its review and appeal opportunities have been exhausted."
