In partnership with the Memorial Weight Loss and Wellness Center in Springfield, Passavant Area Hospital is now offering comprehensive weight loss and wellness services to patients in Jacksonville and the surrounding communities. The physician-led program, Memorial Weight Loss & Wellness Center at Passavant, provides patients with a comprehensive, medically managed approach to the safest, highest quality of care for weight loss and wellness. The facility is located inside the Specialty Clinic, located on the second floor, East Wing. More than 154 million Americans age 20 and older are overweight or obese, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Obesity is the second leading cause of preventable death. According to the most recent statistics, 70 percent of Morgan County residents are overweight or obese. Obesity is also largely associated with a higher risk for other serious conditions including hypertension, type 2 diabetes, coronary artery disease, stroke, arthritis, and asthma. The Memorial Weight Loss and Wellness Center at Passavant offers a medical weight loss component as well as diabetes and outpatient nutrition services. Patients can benefit from nutritional education, physical fitness support, medical therapies, surgical procedures and lifestyle and behavior-modification techniques.
