Centegra introduces new Weight-Loss Institute

CRYSTAL LAKE – Centegra Health System has introduced the Centegra Weight-Loss Institute, a comprehensive weight-management service.

The institute features medically based services, including weight-loss surgery, medical nutrition therapy, Centegra Health Bridge Fitness Centers, diabetes centers and wellness coaching.

A Centegra success story is Janis Hauptly of Volo, who has lost 111 pounds. She was on five different blood pressure and diabetes medications and is now down to one.

"Who would have ever thought exercise could be fun," Hauptly said. "But it really is."

After her weight-loss surgery, Hauptly's Centegra physician gave her a two-month WellBridge membership referral to join Centegra Health Bridge Fitness Centers.

"My goal was to become healthier, not just lose weight," Hauptly said. "Losing weight was a fortunate side effect. I was looking to control my diabetes, my high blood pressure and my high cholesterol," she said. "Centegra has truly provided me every service I need to continue to be successful."

The Centegra Weight-Loss Institute provides support at every stage of weight loss, whether you're working toward a total body makeover or simply trying to live a healthier, more active life through diet and exercise.

The institute also offers bariatric weight-loss surgery options, including gastric bypass, LAP Band surgery and Realize Band surgery, diabetes treatment and education, and enhanced nutrition/diet programs.
