COVID-19 Safety Precautions

Safety is our top priority.

We want to assure you that we are here for you. While the coronavirus has changed much of our daily lives, one thing that has remained constant is our commitment to providing you with the best, safest care possible.

We continue with our COVID-19 preparedness and response efforts. The Center for Weight and Wellness now offers both in-person and virtual visits for individual patients. Patients can let their providers know their preference. Weight management groups and fitness classes remain virtual until further notice. Your missed weeks will be added to the end of your program. Even though our groups are temporarily suspended, we are still working to help our patients meet their weight management goals.

Weight Loss and Management Programs

The Lifespan Center for Weight and Wellness provides the most comprehensive, integrated care to support each patient’s goals for achieving a healthy weight and wellness. The center offers treatment for moderately to severely overweight adults at its locations in Providence and East Greenwich.

We develop a treatment plan for each patient based on his or her weight loss goals and psychological and medical conditions. All our programs include ongoing medical assessment and treatment, instruction in behavioral strategies, exercise consultations and instruction, and nutritional counseling. We also offer a specialized program for patients with diabetes.
