Why choose Melrose Center?
At Melrose Center, we offer support, encouragement and healing for people struggling with all types of eating disorders. When you partner with Melrose Center, you will be welcomed into a peaceful, safe and trusting environment that encourages a return to a rich quality of life.

At Melrose Center, we know what an important role family and friends play in a patient’s recovery. Our program uses evidence-based approaches, and research shows the family based approach is the most effective in treating eating disorders in adolescents.
Melrose is a part of Park Nicollet, a nonprofit, multi-specialty health care system. This allows for streamlined care coordination when patients require more extensive medical care. Park Nicollet is steeped in proven health care practices and supports Melrose in research and ongoing training for clinicians, which ensures our patients are receiving the best, most effective proven care.
Since Melrose Center was founded, philanthropy has played an important role in helping us deliver quality care to the community. Philanthropic funds helped us deliver professional training to our staff, provide therapies to our patients such as music therapy, spiritual care and mind body training for staff. Philanthropy also played a role in building our beautiful St. Louis Park Facility.
In addition to our main location in St. Louis Park, Melrose Center offers care in Maple Grove and St. Paul. All three locations are unique and beautifully designed to offer a safe, comfortable place for healing. The soothing atmosphere helps with relaxation, practicing effective coping skills and reducing anxiety, depression and obsessive thoughts.
Our St. Louis Park location houses intensive residential, residential and outpatient care. The building is adjacent to a protected wetland and is bathed in natural light, creating a calming, homelike environment. All of our locations offer easy access by public transportation and have free parking.
We have been successfully healing eating disorders for more than 30 years. In 1986 we opened as Methodist Hospital Eating Disorders Institute, offering both inpatient and outpatient care in a hospital setting. In 2009, Methodist Hospital Eating Disorders Institute became Park Nicollet Melrose Institute and moved into a new 67,000-square foot freestanding facility in St. Louis Park, Minnesota. In 2013 we again changed our name - to Park Nicollet Melrose Center - to better reflect the supportive, healing-focused care we provide.
