What We Treat

At Scottish Rite hospital, we provide medical stabilization of eating disorders, such as anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa, using the most up-to-date American Academy of Pediatrics care guidelines. We provide care using a multidisciplinary treatment team approach that includes pediatrics, psychiatry, nutrition, nursing, child life, social work and case management.

Services We Offer

  • Pediatric care: Our experienced pediatric staff will closely monitor your child’s vital signs and laboratory values and treat any abnormalities.
  • Psychiatry: We assess, diagnose and treat psychiatric conditions such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, and coexisting conditions like major depression and anxiety.
  • Nutrition: We assess your child’s nutritional status and develop a meal plan, which may include nasogastric tube feedings, to provide nutrition repletion. We have nutrition education and support for patients and families.
  • Nursing: Your child will have 24-hour care and monitoring of vital signs and nutritional intake.
  • Case management: We offer help navigating your insurance benefits and post-discharge planning.
  • Child life: We provide education and work to normalize the hospital experience for your child.

Our Unique Approach

At Children’s, we have developed a care guideline to help our Emergency Department physicians identify patients in this high-risk population and guide these physicians in making admission decisions. Our inpatient care guideline uses the most up-to-date American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines on the medical stabilization of eating disorders. These guidelines support our team through a systematic treatment approach.
