Veritas Collaborative Opens Outpatient Medical Clinic for Eating Disorders
Veritas Collaborative opened Atlanta’s first outpatient medical clinic for eating disorders February 1. The clinic will offer outpatient medical services for children, adolescents and young adults with known or suspected eating disorders including anorexia, bulimia and binge eating disorder. In the coming weeks, the organization plans to add additional outpatient services including psychiatric, dietetic and therapeutic care.
Veritas Collaborative CEO Stacie McEntyre began her career in Atlanta as a social worker treating patients with eating disorders more than 25 years ago. Dr. Anna Tanner, executive director of medical clinic programs at Veritas Collaborative, will lead the clinic and also provide direct medical care.
The opening of the Atlanta clinic follows a year of expansive growth for Veritas. Based in Durham, N.C., the organization entered its first out-of-state market through the opening of a new facility in Richmond, Va., in February 2016. Later that same year, Veritas opened a 25-bed adult hospital and expanded its inaugural child and adolescent hospital to 40 beds in Durham due to increased demand.
