Core Values and Mission

People desire to feel purpose in their careers, and what we do day in and day out is serve people who need our guidance. We strive to achieve this through our core values of Compassion, Collaboration, Integrity, Inclusivity, Accountability, Flexibility.

Eating Recovery Center’s mission is to take the very best care of patients, families, providers, and our teammates as we deliver the highest quality treatment for patients with eating disorders and mood disorders.

ERC Pathlight Mission

Working in a Treatment Center

If you’ve never worked at a center before, it’s difficult to picture the day-to-day. From an “immediate feeling of calm” to “pretty colors on the walls” to working in the children's unit and hearing their “infectious laughter and chatter” when you walk in every morning, each setting is different depending on your position. However, our teams agree that ‘fulfilling’ is the word that comes to mind.

Diversity and Inclusion

We strongly reject racism, hate, and discrimination as they run counter to what is good and ethical, and stand in total opposition to Pathlight-ERC’s core values. We are committed in our efforts to support all of our teammates so we can ensure that we as an organization fully live up to our values that include non-discrimination, inclusion and respect for diversity.

Through our Employee Assistance Program (EAP), we provide additional counseling opportunities to help teammates address racially motivated traumas they are experiencing or have experienced in their lives. Internally, we engage with Diversity, Equality & Inclusion consultants to help advise our company across a spectrum of areas and help us identify and prioritize areas that can enhance our workforce diversity and experience.

Pathlight-ERC is an equal opportunity employer. Qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, protected veteran status or any other status protected by applicable law.

Advocacy for mental health care and insurance

In the same way we observe and guide our patients, we take the same consideration for our employees when building our benefits packages and healthcare offerings that include mental wellness at the forefront: ample PTO, an Employee Assistance Program, and comprehensive healthcare.

We will advocate for you and fight tooth and nail to get insurance to cover you for any mental health condition you are experiencing, which includes mind, body, and health, at a low co-pay.

I think being in the nursing field, there are many ways we can light the way for our patients. Sometimes that means being the light to their darkness that is their eating disorder or mood disorder, sometimes it's being a nightlight of comfort in the middle of the night when they can't sleep. As a nurse, simply advocating for our patients can bring light to a dark time in their life. As a collaborative team, I think we at ERC and Pathlight can offer a light of hope to our patients who feel like there isn't any.
