Referring Provider Testimonial: Kim Waters

Kim Waters, APRN-FNP, Founder of Hope Healthcare in Lincoln, Nebraska, discusses her experience referring patients with severe eating disorders to ACUTE: “A frustration for me as a nurse practitioner is seeing that medically, eating disorders seem to have fallen off the face of the planet. There is a lack of knowledge in medical settings, with otherwise brilliant physicians not understanding that patients with eating disorders are so different and vulnerable. It would be like getting cancer, and no one in your state knows to what to do about it. It’s beyond comforting to know that I can call ACUTE and have a patient here in two days or less. Dr. Mehler is more than textbook knowledge and extensive treatment experience. There’s no word to describe him. He cares so much about his patients. He and his team go the extra step.”

ACUTE Earns Prestigious Center of Excellence Designation from Anthem
In 2018, the ACUTE Center for Eating Disorders & Severe Malnutrition at Denver Health was honored by Anthem Health as a Center of Excellence for Medical Treatment of Severe and Extreme Eating Disorders. ACUTE is the first medical unit ever to achieve this designation in the field of eating disorders. It comes after a rigorous review process.
