I don’t know of a hospital that ONLY treats patients with eating disorders, but pediatric hospitals have clinics that treat eating disorders. Check with the one nearest to you. They may have something called an “eating disorder clinic“, a “teen health clinic” or an “adolescent medicine clinic” that will treat the problem, or their psychology/psychiatry clinic may do so.

If you or your child has a primary care physician, s/he is the best point of contact to find out where to go for help.
