Melrose Center expands services in Woodbury
Increases access for eating disorder treatment in East Metro
BLOOMINGTON, Minn. – Melrose Center is expanding services for eating disorder care in the East Metro. The expansion will help improve access for an increased number of people seeking treatment for eating disorders. Melrose Center cared for 3,300 patients last year which is a 24 percent increase since 2015.
Melrose began offering care last fall at the HealthPartners Regions Behavioral Health clinic in Woodbury for two days a week. The clinic now offers care from three therapists, a dietitian and a medical provider and appointments are available four days a week. Services include initial assessments and outpatient treatment for all eating disorders for children and adults.
“Treating eating disorders requires expert care from a whole team,” said Heather Gallivan, PsyD, clinical director of Melrose Center. “We are pleased to expand our services in the East Metro so that patients and their families can get this care close to home.”
Melrose Center has been treating eating disorders for more than 30 years. In addition to the Woodbury location, Melrose also offers services in St. Louis Park, Maple Grove, St. Paul and Burnsville.
