See Inside The Center for Eating Disorders at Sheppard Pratt

Welcome to The Center for Eating Disorders in Baltimore, Maryland. After more than 20 years, much growth and a major renovation during our move to Sheppard Pratt Hospital in 2005, our program continues to be one of the nation’s leading treatment centers for individuals with eating disorders. Most recently, The Center opened a new, fully-renovated unit that caters specifically to the needs of children age 15 and under.

You can browse our photo gallery to get a look inside the facility and see important features of the Adult & Older Adolescent program as well as the Child & Adolescent program, throughout each level of care.
