HMR Gold Standard Award

Twice a year, Health Management Resources (HMR) awards Gold Standards to the top 5 affiliate programs in the nation, in a variety of areas.

HMR recognizes programs that demonstrate excellence in performance and patient care by presenting Gold Standard Certificates semi-annually to select clinics. The awards include categories such as group attendance, compliance with diet imperatives, weight loss success rates, weight maintenance success rates and more. HMR clinics nationwide submit clinical data in these areas and only the top 5 programs are awarded the Gold Standard for excellence within these different categories.
