When we have a client in need of a higher level of care, ACUTE is our #1 choice. The whole team from admissions, to clinical and medical, truly care about each patient and work collaboratively to communicate during the client's stay so we can facilitate a smooth transfer.
When I have a client so medically compromised that a life hangs desperately in the balance, my first recommendation is ACUTE. The specialized medical care ACUTE provides has no equal anywhere. They save lives when hope seems bleak and recovery impossible. I am deeply, deeply grateful to them for the care they have provided my clients.
As an interventionist and therapist, I have relied on the ACUTE Center for Eating Disorders & Severe Malnutrition to treat people with severe eating disorders since it opened. Working with critically ill patients with eating disorders and their families, the staff at ACUTE are compassionate with families in crisis, helpful in expediting an emergent admission and provide overall excellent comprehensive care from admission to discharge. I am so appreciative of the services ACUTE provides to their patients and families, while providing expert collaboration as the referring provider.
In 38 years of working with patients with severe eating disorders in hospital and outpatient settings, the clinical expertise and quality of care provided to patients with severe eating disorders at ACUTE is unmatched, in my experience, by any other treatment clinic. ACUTE is my first choice of treatment for patients who are at medical risk due to an eating disorder diagnosis.
