ACUTE Center for Eating Disorders at Denver Health Joins REDC

REDC (Residential Eating Disorders Consortium) was formed in 2011 to serve as a professional association of eating disorder treatment providers, focused on standards, ethics, policy, research and best practices. Membership in REDC is currently reserved for eating disorder programs offering 24-hour care that meets REDC established standards. 
As such, ACUTE’s membership brings many benefits to REDC, particularly as it relates to the subset of severe patients who become too medically ill for residential treatment. 

ACUTE's expertise with the medical complications of severe eating disorders has contributed significantly to the REDC Medical Standards Committee development of the Standards of Excellence of Medical Care for People with Eating Disorders that ensure patient safety in the residential treatment center setting. We welcome ACUTE to join our community of peers in our efforts to maintain the highest standards of eating disorders care at the residential level of care and beyond.

REDC President

We’re grateful for the opportunity to collaborate more closely with REDC and other member treatment centers on this important cause. To best serve patients and families touched by the most severe eating disorders, we must continue to work together to facilitate transitions of care that support safety, survival and recovery.
