Weight Loss Solutions for Your Unique Needs
Achieving weight loss is a long-term process. At Henry Ford Health, we are here to support you with all of your weight management goals and needs. Through our weight management program options, you will have access to a variety of valuable resources, including nutrition and personal exercise/behavioral consults with experts, online support programs, and long-term maintenance strategies.
To participate in the weight management program, your body mass index (BMI) must be greater than 30, and some plans require a signed referral form your doctor.
As part of the weight management program, you will receive a unique plan tailored directly to you. Through a combination of healthy eating, supplements and exercise, you will work with experts who will assist you in achieving your weight loss goals – and help you stay there.
Weight loss takes a lot of time and effort, which is why we ask our patients involved in the weight management program for a minimum of a four-month commitment. You may choose to extend your program past this time period, as there are different plans to accommodate you. There are also education and other preventative programs available, as well as access to ongoing online support. In addition to the weight management program, there are various self-paced wellness and learning programs available at your convenience.
Henry Ford also offers a variety of programs for children to learn proper eating habits, the importance of exercise other nutrition information. The program uses a multidisciplinary approach, including the expertise of our medical professionals, to focus on behavior modification and education rather than solely weight loss.
The exact price of your weight management program is unique to the services you use. Depending on your insurance provider, some -- if not all -- of the costs associated with this program may be covered.
Our programs are available at locations across metro Detroit, including at the Henry Ford Heart & Vascular Center sites in Detroit and other areas and as part of programs through our Henry Ford Macomb, West Bloomfield and Wyandotte hospitals. All offer highly specialized weight management plans at convenient locations.
