Mercy offers many different programs to facilitate weight management. Each employee is unique; there is not a one-size-fits-all approach to weight loss. Choosing the right program is essential to success.
We're here for you through every step of the weight management process. During an initial screening we will help employees select a program and create a plan to achieve goals and make healthy lifestyle changes.
The typical progression for an employee utilizing any of our weight management programs will be:
- Dietitian directed program
- Coaching for future goal setting to keep up new lifestyle habits
For most people, Mercy weight loss programs and coaching will be enough to create healthy lifestyles and achieve weight loss goals. However, sometimes medical intervention is necessary and at any time employees may be referred to a physician.
