Falls Church, VA – Today, Dominion Hospital announced their Reflections Eating Disorder Treatment Center has been recertified by the Joint Commission. Dominion met the rigorous standards of the worlds’ preeminent accreditation and certification organization and achieved recertification with zero deficiencies. This is Dominion’s third consecutive certification as a disease-specific certified treatment provider for eating disorders.
“The recertification of Reflections by the Joint Commission proves that our clinical team here at Dominion relies on evidenced-based treatment for the effective management of eating disorders in an effort to produce the most positive clinical outcomes for our patients,” said Gary Litovitz, MD, psychiatrist and chief medical officer at Dominion Hospital.
Dominion’s Reflections Center provides inpatient and outpatient eating disorder treatment for all genders, and for individuals age 9 and up. The program applies a personalized approach with each client and provides access to a comprehensive treatment team including a psychiatrist, internal medicine physician, therapist, and registered dietician to address eating disorders including anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa. The service also provides support including partial hospitalization/day programming offered 12 hours per day seven days per week.
“Reflections is the only Joint Commission disease-specific certified eating disorders program in the Mid-Atlantic Region, and one of only two programs nationally to receive this distinction,” said Lee Higginbotham, chief executive officer at Dominion Hospital. “We are very proud to earn this recognition for the third consecutive survey, and I think it speaks volumes to Dominion’s commitment to providing top quality patient care for both adolescents and adults suffering from eating disorders.”
