Thanks to the hard work of all our patients and staff, we are pleased to announce that the Ministry Health Care Weight Management, an HMR Program, recently received the 2009 HMR Gold Standard Certificate of Achievement. This award distinguishes Ministry Health Care from hundreds of clinics nationwide that are using the HMR weight-loss program. Dr. Lawrence Stifler, Ph.D., founder and president of HMR personally handed out the certificate at a recent training the staff attended.
HMR recognizes programs that demonstrate excellence in performance and patient care by presenting Gold Standard Certificates annually to selected clinics. The criteria for the awards include such variables as group attendance, compliance with the imperatives, weight loss success rates, and weight maintenance success rates. HMR clinics nationwide submit clinical data in these areas. The top programs are then awarded the Gold Standard Award for excellence within these different categories.
