We’d like you to meet some of our patients through their personal eating disorder stories. You’ll discover how ACUTE can help break the seemingly never-ending cycle of emergency room visits and ineffective medical care by providing definitive stabilization in the hands of our caring and compassionate eating disorder specialists. Hundreds of patients have been successfully discharged from our care.

A Lifelong Eating Disorder Battle – and How I Survived: Betty’s Story

I now realize that treatment should not feel like babysitting. At ACUTE, I finally found a team and program that helped save my life.

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.

A life saved...

When our family felt like all hope was lost in our son's critically failing health an angel of mercy, Dr. Jennifer Gaudiani and her Denver Health Team, stepped forward on our family's behalf. The ACUTE Center for Eating Disorders at Denver Health saved my son's life when no other facility in the country was willing to take him because of his advanced eating disorder condition. The level of expert care and concern expressed by every member of the ACUTE staff restored hope and a sense of peace in our family and eventually restored my son's health. Dr. Mehler's caring leadership and patient focus are the cornerstones of this incredible facility whose legacy is renewed every day by a staff that truly believes in their work. The ACUTE program is about far more than treatment and health stabilization; the real focus is on the patient's well-being and it does not end when treatment is completed. I still talk to Dr. Gaudiani months after my son's treatment concluded. The ACUTE care program at Denver Health changed our lives for the better and there are not enough good words to adequately describe this amazing place or more importantly, the people.
