Patient Testimonials

Family Testimonials

The ACUTE Center for Eating Disorders saves the lives of severe eating disorder patients, and their loved ones are often the most vocal and most grateful.

The treatment and care my daughter received was amazing.

Last year I sent my daughter to the ACUTE Center for Eating Disorders at Denver Health, sight unseen, with the hopes that a miracle would happen. How scary it was for us as parents to send our daughter so far away from home as critical as she was. We put our daughter’s life in the hands of strangers. But we had no choice because we wanted her to survive. ACUTE saved my daughter’s life. The treatment and care my daughter received was amazing. The doctors and nurses truly cared about my daughter’s well-being. My daughter was always treated with respect and dignity.

They never gave up on her and they believed in her ability to recover. The ACUTE Center for Eating Disorders has given me my daughter back. Thanks to the staff's commitment and love we beat the odds. I having nothing but praise for the treatment and care my daughter received at Denver Health and I personally would recommend this facility to anyone who feels like there is no hope. My daughter is living proof that you never give up. Denver Health has given our family a chance to create new memories with our daughter and I know they will be able to help many more families. I cannot thank the doctors, nurses and staff at the ACUTE program for all they have done for our family.
