Start Your Weight Loss Journey with Us
Research shows that as little as a 10 percent weight loss can have a significant impact on your health. Losing weight in a Franciscan program can provide a number of benefits and ensure that your journey is guided by professionals who understand healthcare.
Wellness Programs for Weight Loss
Many weight loss programs are centered around wellness and healthy living. At Francsican Health most (if not all) of our wellness programs are clinically supervised. This means that a nurse, dietician or professional with a clinical education or background is overseeing things to ensure a higher quality program.
- Support groups and classes
- Multi-week clinically-guided programs
Surgical Weight Loss
Franciscan Health offers surgical weight loss through bariatric surgery, which can be an excellent and life-changing option for patients needing to lose substantial amounts of weight.
Medical Weight Loss Programs
Medical weight loss programs are physician-supervised and typically involve nutritional counseling, physician-prescribed weight loss medication, an exercise program and support groups or other collaborative programs to support weight loss goals.

- Support groups and classes - Teaching skills to help you achieve and maintain a healthy body weight.
