Renfrew Clinic Celebrates 25 Year Anniversary in Philadelphia

by KYW’s Jim Melwert

The nation's leading authority on eating disorders, based right here in Philadelphia is celebrating 25 years.

The Renfrew Center's original facility was opened here in 1985:

"It was the first in the country exclusively devoted to treating eating disorders as clinics go."

Founder and president Sam Menaged says things certainly have changed, since Renfrew began twenty-five years ago:

"In 1985, when we opened there was no eating disorder field. Today, you can say there's a field. There are self help groups around the country, there are family foundations. There are lobby groups."

Renfrew has treated 55,000 women and now has facilities in nine states.
