Denver, CO - WittKieffer has been retained to conduct a search for the next Executive Medical Director of the ACUTE Center for Eating Disorders at Denver Health (ACUTE), the first and only nationally ranked medical stabilization unit for severe eating disorders and only facility in the nation equipped to offer this level of specialized expertise. This is a planned succession for the world-renowned leading expert in the field, Philip S.

Inside the 24-bed ACUTE, the world's leading experts provide life-saving medical stabilization for patients suffering from severe eating disorders and the resultant medical complications. Patients travel to ACUTE from all 50 states in the U.S. and from countries around the world. Patient stays at ACUTE typically average 21 days. Honored by Anthem Health as a Center of Excellence for Medical Treatment of Severe and Extreme Eating Disorders, ACUTE is the first medical unit ever to achieve this designation in the field of eating disorders. Dr. Mehler's multidisciplinary team has treated the sickest of eating disorder patients for over 30 years and through evidence-based research, know how to safely stabilize patients and how to make them comfortable as possible, both physically and emotionally. Currently ACUTE has more than 150 full-time employees.

The new Executive Medical Director will direct all aspects of ACUTE patient care and safety, clinical quality, best practices, evidence based research and overall patient experience. Because this is a medical stabilization unit, qualified candidates will be an MD/DO and must be Board Certified in either Internal Medicine, Gastroenterology, Endocrinology or Cardiology and eligible for medical licensure in Colorado. The ideal candidate will be a recognized leader in the field, a member of the Academy for Eating Disorders, and be eligible for an academic appointment at the level of Associate Professor or Professor through the University of Colorado School of Medicine.
