Rosewood Provides Acute Eating Disorder Care
Eating disorders can severely damage people’s vital organs and systems. While most patients are medically stable when they arrive for treatment, many are not. In fact, some patients arrive in critical condition.
For patients arriving with severe illness, malnourishment and dehydration, Rosewood Ranch is able to provide acute care services. Our medical team, led by Dr. Amelia Davis, a leading expert in hospital care for severely complex eating disorder patients, seeks first to stabilize the patient and restore fluid balance and minimum body weight. We can also manage medically supervised detoxification if necessary. Once the patient is medically stabilized, we will assess and determine the most appropriate level of care. We also have a seamless working relationship with surrounding medical hospitals in case patients need more medical attention than we can provide.
Rosewood Ranch’s critical care professionals are key members of our ongoing medical team—not part-time clinicians with permanent jobs somewhere else.
