Denver Opens New InPatient Center For Children, Teens And Adults With ED

A recent report from the American Academy of Pediatrics revealed that hospitalizations for children with eating disorders are on the rise, that approximately 0.5 percent of adolescent girls in the United States have anorexia, and that 1 to 2 percent meet diagnostic criteria for bulimia.

To address this growing trend, Eating Recovery Center (EatingRecoveryCenter.com), a national center for eating disorders recovery, has opened Eating Recovery Center, a Behavioral Hospital for Children and Adolescents, a hospital specifically dedicated to providing comprehensive eating disorders treatment for children and adolescents – both girls and boys – ages 10 to 17. The hospital opened in January, 2011 in Denver’s Lowry neighborhood, and is now accepting patients.

Eating Recovery Center is a national center for eating disorders recovery providing comprehensive treatment for anorexia and bulimia. Denver-based facilities include a licensed behavioral hospital treating adults, an outpatient office and a facility treating children and adolescents. Under the personal guidance and care of Drs. Kenneth Weiner and Emmett Bishop, and the newest additions to the leadership team – Drs. Craig Johnson and Ovidio Bermudez, collaborative programs provide a full spectrum of services for children, adolescents and adults. Their integrated program offers patients from across the country a continuum of care that includes inpatient, residential, partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient and outpatient services.
