  • The weight loss surgery program continues to grow, and now includes laparoscopic sleeve gastrectomy surgery.  The required informational seminar is now available online anytime at mercer-health.com.

  • The Medifast® Program offers a structured meal plan that incorporates specially formulated Medifast meal replacement and snack products to achieve a low calorie, low carbohydrate diet.  To begin the Medifast program, view the required “Introduction to Medifast” class online anytime at mercer-health.com.
  • The MedGem Indirect Calorimeter is a handheld device that determines an individual’s resting metabolic rate.  This test also includes an interpretation with a registered dietitian to determine an appropriate caloric level for weight loss.  Tests are scheduled on a patient by patient basis.
