Welcome to St. Rita’s Weight Management Program. Here at St. Rita’s we realize that losing weight does not have a one-size-fits-all solution, which is why we have developed a comprehensive program including medical and surgical weight management, nutrition counseling, fitness education, psychological evaluation, and support groups. Losing weight is one of the hardest things there is to do and we have a team of caring professionals interested in helping patients with excess weight attain better health to LivWell and Be well.
Mercy Health St. Rita’s has received the MBSAQIP Comprehensive Center accreditation!
"Obtaining the center of excellence accreditation from the Metabolic Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and quality improvement program allows the patient to be confident that they are receiving the highest level of care for their obesity disease. Treating obesity requires a multidisciplinary approach including nutritional education. behavior modifications, improved exercise/fitness, pharmacotherapy and occasionally surgical intervention. Long-term follow up is very important for successful treatment of obesity for these patients. A program accredited with the center of excellence assures the patient that they will receive full and comprehensive care for their obesity from a highly trained and well diverse team.” – Dr. Jason Bowersock, MD FACS
