Who We Are

Directed out of the  University of Rochester School of Nursing, the WNYCCCED is a partnership between the School of Nursing and the  Child and Adolescent Eating Disorders Program at Golisano Children’s Hospital. It is one of three legislatively mandated  comprehensive care centers for eating disorders funded by the NY State Office of Mental Health.

We also work closely with our community-based affiliate site at The Healing Connection.

What We Do

Each of the NYS Comprehensive Care Centers offers a continuum of comprehensive and coordinated care services for individuals with eating disorders and their families. The Center's critical services promote public health; facilitate quick access to care; promote coordinated, comprehensive, continuous care and effective chronic disease management; foster relapse prevention; and promote best practices in eating disorder care. These services are not reimbursed by insurers.

WNYCCCED services are offered free of charge and include: 

    • Ready access to information, referral, and eating disorders treatment services.
    • Outreach, prevention and early intervention services, and education to community members and professionals including health practitioners, schools/colleges, and insurers.
    • Care management and other transitional services, such as parent peer mentoring, young adult peer mentoring, and life coaching to ensure timely access to services, seamless transition from one level of care to the next and from treatment into the community.
    • Research efforts into effective methods of education, prevention, and treatment.
