In addition to serving as the liaison among Eating Recovery Center's medical staffs, management teams and administrative leadership, he will also provide direct medical care to adults in the Denver-based Inpatient/Residential levels of care and deliver clinical support and consultation to the full Eating Recovery Center system of treatment centers in Colorado, California, Washington, Illinois and Texas.

"I have been fortunate to collaborate with Eating Recovery Center since its inception in 2008, and also to have worked alongside many of its medical and clinical experts for several decades in the eating disorder treatment field," comments Dr. Mehler. "I look forward to this next chapter of collaboration with the leading provider of comprehensive eating disorder treatment and to contributing my medical expertise to Eating Recovery Center's fully vertically-integrated continuum of care."

Prior to joining Eating Recovery Center, Dr. Mehler served as Chief Clinical Officer and Medical Director Denver Health and Hospital Authority after being promoted from his prior position of Chief Medical Officer of Denver Health. Dr. Mehler began his career at Denver Health nearly 30 years ago and was formerly its Chief of Internal Medicine. He is the Glassman Professor of Medicine at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, and has conducted research into the treatment of the most severe eating disorder cases and the complications that can arise in Anorexia Nervosa and Bulimia Nervosa. Dr. Mehler has authored more than 350 publications, including a textbook, Medical Complications of Eating Disorders, which was published by the Johns Hopkins University Press and is now in its second edition. Dr. Mehler was the recipient of the Academy of Eating Disorders 2012 Outstanding Clinician Award, has been recognized among the "Best Doctors in America" for the past 14 years, and was voted the "Top Internist in Denver" multiple times by 5280 magazine. Dr. Mehler is a member and fellow of the Eating Disorders Research Society and the Academy of Eating Disorders, as well as a member of the editorial board of the International Journal of Eating Disorders. He has lectured extensively on a national and international level as the leading medical expert on the topic of medical complications of eating disorders.

"As someone who has interfaced with Dr. Mehler for over 26 years in various treatment settings, I'm certain that he brings to this role unmatched expertise in understanding, identifying and addressing medical complications associated with eating disorders," explains Ken Weiner, MD, FAED, CEDS, Founding Partner and Chief Executive Officer of Eating Recovery Center. "Patients and families will benefit from the world's foremost expert overseeing the delivery of the highest quality medical care and support, while Eating Recovery Center's medical staff will benefit greatly from Dr. Mehler's mentorship, guidance and supervision."
