To that end, the hospital is developing a program in their physical therapy department to allow Medical Weight Loss patients use of exercise equipment there year-round.
"It's important to offer our community access to a variety of specialized services such as this," said ECH director of community relations Jane Hooper. "The hospital works to ensure that the entire community stays healthy, and this Medical Weight Loss program contributes to that goal."
Some health insurance plans may cover the cost of the Medical Weight Loss program depending on what type of treatment is needed. For more information about the Medical Weight Loss program at ECH, contact the hospital at 873-6377.
