The Moore Center for Eating Disorders Expands Treatment Options by Partnering With Eating Recovery Center

Selective Affiliation Is Part of Eating Recovery Center's Ongoing Commitment to Provide Geographically Diverse Centers of Excellence for the Treatment of Eating Disorders

DENVER, CO--(Marketwire - Jul 19, 2012) - Eating Recovery Center, an international center for eating disorders recovery providing comprehensive treatment for anorexia, bulimia, EDNOS and binge eating disorder, announced today that it has partnered with The Moore Center for Eating Disorders. Located in Bellevue, Wash., The Moore Center is the largest eating disorders clinic in Washington state.

This affiliation brings synergies to both organizations, enabling The Moore Center to enhance its current treatment options by strengthening its connection with an international inpatient and residential center of excellence for the treatment of eating disorders, and providing Eating Recovery Center patients an additional high quality treatment option to explore as they step down from higher levels of care. Patients at both facilities will experience the benefits of two of the best programs sharing medical and clinical practices and philosophies.

Eating Recovery Center will additionally lend organizational depth and breadth to The Moore Center, allowing the Washington facility to utilize Eating Recovery Center's management and administrative services.

"At Eating Recovery Center, we continue to seek out established professionals who share our values and our culture, and who are committed to providing the highest quality eating disorders care," said Kenneth L. Weiner, MD, FAED, CEDS, founding partner and chief executive officer of Eating Recovery Center. "The Moore Center has long been a trusted source of expert eating disorders care in the Pacific Northwest, and I have worked closely with the program's dedicated team for more than 10 years. I strongly believe that this group is the right team with which to share our successful clinical programs."

Since it was founded in 1991, The Moore Center has provided specialized and comprehensive treatment for eating disorders in a medical setting. The treatment center will continue to be led by program founder and medical director Mehri D. Moore, MD.

"Partnering with Eating Recovery Center enables The Moore Center to not only expand our treatment options and provide higher levels of care to our patients, but also leverage the expertise and experience of some of the nation's most respected eating disorders treatment experts," said Dr. Moore. "By incorporating clinical models developed by Eating Recovery Center's leadership team into our treatment program, we strive to provide the best possible care for our patients and support their lasting recovery."

The Moore Center's eating disorders treatment programs include:

  • Comprehensive partial hospitalization programs for adolescents ages 13 through 18 and adults ages 19 and older.
  • An intensive outpatient program that expertly treats eating disorders while minimizing interruption in a patient's daily life.
  • Additional "step down programs" that ease a patient's transition into everyday life while continually promoting lasting eating disorders recovery.

Eating Recovery Center's affiliation with The Moore Center is part of Eating Recovery Center's ongoing effort to provide centers of excellence for the treatment of eating disorders in geographically diverse locations.
