Wellington Regional Medical Center (WRMC) recently announced that it has opened The Weight Management Center, which will provide personalized, physician directed weight management solutions in a newly renovated facility.
The Weight Management Center at WRMC will offer customized weight-loss programs, dedicated treatment teams, health coaching, exercise physiologist/fitness instruction and nutrition management. The center includes a community classroom, where support groups and informational sessions are held monthly, and a fitness center. Weight-loss plans include four-week and 12-week programs, as well as programs for people who have had bariatric surgery.
“Our programs are unique in that they are physician directed and personalized to fit a person’s weight-loss goals,” said Emily, Harrison, M.D., Medical Director of The Weight Management Center. “We start by learning their story to understand the root cause of the weight gain, and then customize a program to help them be successful. After the initial evaluation, follow-up appointments may include meeting with a registered dietitian, a fitness instructor or a health psychologist.”
