Question: “You’re a research hospital? What does that mean?”


  • We are funded by the state of New York and federal grants to provide treatment for individuals who are interested in and eligible for our current research studies.
  • It also means that we operate outside the purview of insurance companies. We do not take insurance because we provide treatment at no cost if you are eligible for and interested in participating in any of our research studies.
  • Research includes a range of studies aiming to understand the causes and characteristics of eating disorders. Not all studies are treatment studies.
