Ellern Mede Moorgate
Local NHS and CCG commissioners have warmly welcomed Ellern Mede Moorgate hospital and school in Rotherham, now a well established specialist eating disorders haven for patients. We have successfully treated many people with eating disorder and pervasive arousal withdrawal (PAWS) conditions. We treat young people aged 8 to 18 and 18 to 25. We offer standard and high dependency inpatient care for NHS and private customers. We also offer step down follow up care for gradual discharge.
Ellern Mede Moorgate
Ellern Mede Moorgate is an inpatient eating disorders and PAWS treatment centre and school. The hospital has two wards – INCA ward for young people aged 8 to 18 and Aztec Ward for young adults aged 18 to 25 as well as an OFSTED registered school providing education to GCSE and A-Level for young people to age 18 and in some cases, separately funded additional educational enrichment or support.

The new 12 bed centre is purpose-built to the high standard of environment and quality of care we offer at all our Ellern Mede hospitals. We are internationally renowned for achieving high rates of sustained recovery, as well as outstanding educational support, for young people who have some of the most extreme eating disorders.
Ellern Mede Moorgate School provides either privately-funded, or Local Authority-funded, education to GCSE and A-Level with a broad curriculum able to create bespoke programmes to match whatever a young person is learning at their mainstream school.

EDIC is like PICU
Our treatment approach focuses on physical and mental stabilisation. Weight management and restoration is supported by an intensive therapeutic programme which often includes working with families or carers during and post discharge. Our High Dependency Unit service can be described as Eating Disorder Intensive Care (EDIC) which is very similar to what is often called a Psychiatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU).
