Ascension Providence Surgical Weight Loss Center

Over recent years, the volume of patients served by this program has decreased. We recently met with our physician partners to explore options to keep the program operational. After careful discernment, our team determined that the necessary patient volumes required to sustain this elective surgical program are higher than we are able to generate in the Greater Waco area, and collectively made the difficult decision to close the program.

Dr. Gayland Sims, Dr. Sherrie Parker and all of us at Ascension Providence have enjoyed the privilege of serving our friends and neighbors over the last 10 years. We want to thank the patients, families, physicians, Ascension Providence associates and volunteers who have entrusted their care to us over the years and we’d like to wish all of our patients continued success on their journey to good health.

At this time, the Ascension Providence Surgical Weight Loss Center will continue operations and provide follow up care to our current patients, though we will not evaluate or accept new surgical candidates. During this time period, any questions should be directed to the Ascension Providence Surgical Weight Loss Center at 254-751-4300.
