Eating Recovery Center Named One of Two 2018 Inaugural Hall of Fame Award Winners by Colorado Companies to Watch
Nation's Largest Network of Eating Disorder Treatment Centers Honored for its Demonstrated Growth and Positive Impact within the State of Colorado
Eating Recovery Center (ERC), a trusted provider of comprehensive treatment for eating disorders, was named one of two inaugural Colorado Companies to Watch (CCTW) Hall of Fame Award Winners for 2018. For its 10th Anniversary, CCTW launched this new award that only previous winners are eligible to receive, specifically those who continue to demonstrate growth and positive impact within the state of Colorado.
Since 2009, Colorado Companies to Watch has honored the critical, yet often overlooked, second-stage companies from across the state for their undeniable impact on their communities. The 50 companies selected each year make an astounding impact on Colorado’s economy by collectively providing thousands of jobs and contributing millions of dollars in revenue. As this is the 10th anniversary, that is 500 companies total that have been honored, making ERC one of two out of 500 companies to be receive this Hall of Fame Award.
ERC was originally named one of 50 Colorado Companies to Watch in 2010 for its innovation in facility design, influence in the behavioral health industry and the Denver community, as well as job creation in the growing healthcare field. The eating disorder treatment center was also recognized for filling a void in regional eating disorder treatment by providing high quality care – from inpatient treatment to outpatient programming – for adults with anorexia and bulimia. ERC was named a 2018 Hall of Fame Winner based on its continued high level of achievement, leadership, and extraordinary contributions within its industry.
Since winning the first award in 2010, ERC has expanded its offerings and services to have multiple locations across seven states, providing comprehensive eating disorder treatment at all levels of care for all genders of adults, adolescents, and children suffering from eating disorders and related conditions.
“We are honored to be recognized with this Hall of Fame Award which signifies we have continued to do what we set out to – fill a void in the Denver area and beyond – in regards to eating disorder treatment. Often, when people have a truly integrated treatment program that cultivates lasting behavioral change and sustains long-term recovery, despite the stage or severity of their disease, recovery is possible,” says Kenneth L. Weiner, MD, CEDS, Founding Partner and Chief Executive Officer of Eating Recovery Center.
