Default NYC in-patient rehab hospital for the morbidly obese

One year in Canada, there was a documentary of a NYC inpatient rehab facility for the morbidly obese. I have never heard about it since and wonder if it is still in existence.

The documentary interviewed both in-patients and staff. No mention was made of the type of diet at the facility but several patients complained of its tastelessness (low-fat?) and others complained about the amount of food given (low calorie?).

Emphasis seemed to be placed on exercise and diet, limited visiting, an admission that some patients ordered and received pizzas - no control?

I have never heard of any results - positive or negative - and I have never heard of them again

Anyone else see the program?
