At the new Center for Surgical Weight Management (CSWM) at Gwinnett Medical Center-Duluth, patients can now find a wealth of healthy-living resources, all behind one door.
GMC-Duluth recently opened the newly renovated, 12,000-square foot facility, located on the Glancy Campus. The new CSWM was made possible through a generous donation from Jim and Billie Ellis of Duluth.
The new CSWM includes several features emphasizing patient care and convenience, such as the Eating Well demonstration kitchen, expanded clothing closet, on-site massage suite, comfortable exam rooms, and larger classrooms.
"One of our ultimate goals through this newly expanded center is to eventually offer patients the ability to complete all pre-surgery requirements in one visit, including the surgical consult, psychological evaluation and nutritional consultation, and fitness evaluation, among others," said Debra Proulx, manager of GMC's CSWM.
This option will be offered in addition to the current option to have the requirements completed over several days or weeks.
In addition to offering multiple services in one location, the CSWM was also constructed and furnished to provide bariatric patients the utmost in comfort.
