Tyrrell named director of corporate wellness with Medi-Weightloss Clinics of Chicagoland
Barbara Tyrrell, former McDonald’s franchise owner of more than 20 years, has joined the staff of Medi-Weightloss Clinics of Chicagoland as director of corporate wellness and patient development.
Employees of companies who partner with Medi-Weightloss Clinics receive discounted rates. Companies may opt to subsidize part or all of the employee’s weight loss treatment.
Tyrrell is a former McDonald’s franchise owner of more than 20 years and is also a certified life coach.
“As a former small business owner, I know first-hand the effect that overweight and obese employees can have on the bottom line in terms of productivity, absenteeism and insurance costs,” Tyrrell said. “I look forward to working with businesses and helping them reduce these costs while offering their employees the added value of a medical weight loss program. Healthy employees are happy employees and that positively affects the bottom line.”
Medi-Weightloss Clinics is a three-phase, physician-supervised weight loss program that works. The program is designed by experts in medicine and public health, nutrition, fitness, motivation, and education. At Medi, physicians and medical professionals prescribe a patient’s weight loss plan based on his or her goals, current condition, and medical history.
Patients eat real food purchased at the grocery store. Patients lose up to 5-10 pounds the first week and up to 20 pounds the first month.
The first Medi-Weightloss Clinic in Chicagoland opened in January, 2011, at 543 Chestnut St., Suite 110, Hinsdale. The second Chicagoland Medi-Weightloss Clinic opened Aug. 22, 2011, at 1879 Bay Scott Circle, Naperville.
