The UPMC Center For Eating Disorders is closely monitoring the ongoing Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak. We are following the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), and both local and state public health authorities’ recommendations. Our top priority remains the health and overall well-being of our patients and employees.
Our prevention efforts include screening potential patients, communicating with family members, limiting visitors, and encouraging both patients and staff to practice hand and respiratory hygiene.
Currently, the UPMC Center For Eating Disorders is offering telehealth services for our Partial Hospitalization Program and Intensive Outpatient Program. Telehealth is being held through a virtual platform and we are accepting new patients.

"Thank you for all of your help this past year. I know I still really struggled to talk at times, but you have made me comfortable enough to discuss things I never thought I would talk about with anyone. It may seem far away, but you have given me hope that someday I'll have this life worth living too. Thank you for believing in me."
