Eating Recovery Center Expands Treatment Capacity

Behavioral hospital adds 12 additional beds to meet increased demand for full spectrum eating disorder treatment Denver, CO (December 8, 2009) – Eating Recovery Center (, a behavioral hospital providing comprehensive treatment and sustainable recovery for eating disorders, this week announced that it has opened 12 new inpatient and residential beds to help meet an overwhelming demand for full spectrum eating disorder care. The expansion nearly doubles Eating Recovery Center’s inpatient and residential treatment capacity.  A total of 24 beds is now dedicated to inpatient and residential care. “Demand continues to grow for quality programs that can both address the complicated nature of these devastating diseases and offer a full spectrum of care,” said Kenneth L. Weiner, MD, CEDS, co-founder and medical director of Eating Recovery Center. “As one of only a handful of facilities offering this type of programming, Eating Recovery Center is doing its part to meet the challenge of this specialized need.” A Joint Commission accredited, licensed behavioral hospital, Eating Recovery Center provides men and women 17 and older a full spectrum of treatment for eating disorders along a continuum of care. Recovery options include inpatient, residential, partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient, and outpatient programs, all within a singular treatment facility. “Our multi-level treatment program helps patients move at their own pace through recovery,” said Weiner. “Expanding the facility allows us to bring in more patients at higher levels of care and facilitate their transition to lower levels, in one setting with one treatment team. This tailored approach dramatically increases a patient’s likelihood of a long-term recovery.” The only eating disorder center in Denver offering a full spectrum of care, Eating Recovery Center was founded in October 2008 by Kenneth L. Weiner, MD, CEDS, and Emmett R. Bishop, MD, CEDS, each of whom has separately established a number of eating disorder treatment centers. Eating Recovery Center reflects the culmination of the doctors’ focused efforts and industry expertise.
