Changes Due to COVID-19 and Support for Patients at the Center for Weight and Wellness

Due to COVID-19 preparedness and response efforts, the Center for Weight and Wellness is suspending all weight management groups until further notice. Your missed weeks will be added to the end of your program.

Support for Patients

In order to support you with your weight loss program while our groups are suspended, the following services are available:

  • Telephone check-ins with Center for Weight and Wellness medical providers will be available per your program protocol, for example, weekly, or bi-weekly. Our staff will call you to schedule a call between the hours of 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. or 1 p.m. to 6 p.m.

  • Limited in-person medical visits will be available for any urgent medical concern relating to your Center for Weight and Wellness program. Your medical provider will determine if an in-person visit is needed after consulting with you on the phone. Please call the staff at 401-793-8790 to schedule a visit if you have an urgent medical concern pertaining to your weight loss program.
    IMPORTANT: Due to the rapidly changing coronavirus COVID-19 situation, please review this information before visiting any Lifespan facility or outpatient practice for an appointment or procedure. 

  • In the absence of groups, brief individual behavioral, nutrition or exercise telephone consults will also be available for scheduling during the hours of 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. or 3 to 6 p.m. Monday through Thursdays, and 8 to 11 a.m. on Saturdays.

  • Follow-up visits for individual weight management programs will now be conducted via a telephone call. The provider will contact you at your regularly scheduled follow-up appointment time. Please call the staff at 401-793-8790 if your scheduled appointment is no longer a convenient time to be contacted and we will be happy to reschedule.
