The Weight Loss Clinic at Premier Healthcare: Ideal Protein

Premier’s Weight Loss Program in conjunction with Ideal Protein

The Ideal Protein line used in the weight loss clinic was medically designed over 25 years ago by a doctor in France. Here at Premier Healthcare, each person is medically supervised and assessed weekly during the course of the program.

The program itself helps each person stabilize their pancreas and blood sugar levels through proper nutrition and will cause the body to live off stored fat. It is a program that does not mess with muscle mass, but will burn away the stored fat.

With the weight loss clinic, it incorporates protein into the diet daily and lowers the amount of calories and carbohydrates ingested. With that becomes an increase in fat burning and a weekly weight loss. It is expected that women will lose 2-3 pounds weekly and men 3-5 pounds weekly if the protocol is followed properly.

Premier Healthcare Weight loss clinic is headed by staff that is very knowledgeable of the Ideal protein line and are trained to monitor patients through their weight loss journey.

The Weight Loss clinic is a safe and effective program and will give a person results if followed properly. The ideal protein line has 75 different foods that range from breakfast choices to sweet treats. It is not a drink system; it is based off a variety of products that each person can choose what they want to eat weekly.

If interested in the program, it is a requirement that every person attend a free workshop. Workshops are held every second and fourth Tuesday of each month from 5:45pm to 6:30pm. The workshops will go over the program, costs, and give out samples of the products for people to taste. Each person must sign-up to attend the workshops. The number to call and signup for a workshop is 812-331-3401.


Bloomington Endoscopy Center’s Particpation in the ASCA’s Capitol Fly-In Event

On Wednesday, June 18, the Ambulatory Surgery Center Association (ASCA) held the Capitol Fly-In event, bringing together industry experts to directly lobby their members of Congress. The Bloomington Endoscopy Center was a prominent participant and was proud that their Administrator and IFASC (Indiana Federation of Ambulatory Surgery Centers) Board member, Teleatha Mortimer RN, BSN, CASC, CGRN was able to make personal connections with their legislators. IFASC Executive Director, Carol Blanar, RN, BSN, CASC, also participated. In total, ASCA gathered 85 representatives of the ASC industry and organized 100 plus meetings with House and Senate offices, dozens of which were in-person meeting with the members of Congress themselves.

Bloomington Endoscopy Center and IFASC met with Senators Joe Donnelly and Dan Coats as well as Representatives Todd Young, Larry Bucshon and Jackie Walorski. They were all asked to support legislation that will ensure the viability of ASCs in the community, increase access to colorectal screenings, and allow our centers to effectively implement electronic health record usage.

Several showed interest in visiting BEC for a facility tour to learn more about how ambulatory surgery centers deliver cost effective and efficient healthcare.

BEC and IFASC returned home to take care of patients, but will stay in touch with our representatives, especially as election season rolls in.
