The more than 100,000-square-foot center will be the company's largest in Texas, with 72 beds. It will be open 24 hours a day and will offer inpatient, residential and intensive outpatient levels of care, as well as partial hospitalization for children, adolescents and adults suffering from eating disorders such as anorexia, bulimia, avoidant restrictive food intake disorder and co-occurring conditions.
This location is being built because of a need seen in Texas and the Plano area, according to the company, whose current Eating Recover Center facility is located on the Plano Baylor Scott & White Medical Center campus.
"This new treatment center more than doubles our capacity to treat those patients in need, so we’re hoping this relieves a real burden for patients and families who are suffering and don’t know where to turn,” Dr. Stephanie Setliff, regional medical director of eating recovery center, said in a press release.
The center will employ nearly 100 people at the time of opening and will work to care for the therapeutic, psychiatric, medical and dietary needs of each patient, according to the release. 1-877-711-1690. www.eatingrecoverycenter.com
