How to refer to the Healthy Weight program

Akron Children’s Hospital’s Healthy Weight Clinic is now housed within the Department of Pediatrics.

To refer a patient:

  • Via EPIC, enter a referral order under division “Healthy Weight.” Note that as of Jan. 1, 2018, referrals are no longer entered under “Sports Medicine.”
  • Have patient families call 330-543-5673 to schedule an assessment.

The multidisciplinary Healthy Weight team treats children ages 2-18 years with a variety of interventions based on each patient’s needs.

The team will review patient information and schedule an appointment with the appropriate provider/program. Services are offered in multiple locations.

These lab tests may be recommended but are not required for all patients: Fasting Glucose, HgbA1c, liver function studies and lipid profile.
