(EFFINGHAM, IL) – The HSHS St. Anthony’s Weight Management Program, with locations in Effingham and Altamont, recently received multiple 2018 HMR Gold Standard Certificates of Achievement. 
These awards distinguish HSHS St. Anthony’s Weight Management among clinics nationwide using the program for weight loss developed by HMR (Weight Management Services Corp.).
HMR recognizes programs that demonstrate excellence in performance and patient care by presenting Gold Standard Certificates annually to a select group of clinics across the nation. Certificates are awarded in categories such as greatest weight-loss rates, best weight-maintenance data, and other categories. HMR Programs nationwide submit clinical data in these areas and the top programs are presented with the HMR Gold Standard Certificate of Achievement. 
“As a new program and this being our first year operating, we were thrilled to receive awards for so many different aspects of our program,” say Brooke Welcher-Miner, Registered Dietitian and Program Coordinator for HSHS St. Anthony’s Weight Management. “The program speaks for itself as we have helped 87 individuals locally lose over 1,300 pounds so far.” Welcher-Miner notes, “This is only the beginning for us. We’re certainly excited to continue to grow and positively impact the health of Effingham County residents and beyond.”
HSHS St. Anthony’s Weight Management offers a comprehensive approach to weight loss that includes intensive lifestyle education and the option of medical supervision. The program is also available as a digital option, allowing even more people to participate. Using the program developed by HMR, people can now lose weight in person, or on their own with the support of a free HMR app and group phone coaching.
