Ren­frew Cen­ter re­ceives fam­ily busi­ness award

Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - SOCIETY - A press re­lease from The Ren­frew Cen­ter

The Ren­frew Cen­ter, the na­tion’s first res­i­den­tial eat­ing dis­or­der fa­cil­ity ded­i­cated ex­clu­sively to the treat­ment of ado­les­cent girls and women, was re­cently awarded Fam­ily Busi­ness of the Year in the large busi­ness cat­e­gory by the Philadel­phia Inquirer for its busi­ness im­pact, com­mu­nity in­volve­ment, in­no­va­tion and growth.

Sa­muel E. Me­naged founded The Ren­frew Cen­ter in 1985 in Philadel­phia. Led by a staff of ad­min­is­tra­tive and clin­i­cal per­son­nel — psy­chol­o­gists, so­cial work­ers, psy­chi­a­trists, physi­cians, nurses and nu­tri­tion­ists — Ren­frew’s mis­sion is to pro­vide cut­tingedge treat­ment to those suf­fer­ing from eat­ing dis­or­ders and to bring na­tional at­ten­tion to this hid­den epi­demic.

In 1990, Me­naged opened a sec­ond res­i­den­tial fa­cil­ity in Co­conut Creek, Fla. That same year, The Ren­frew Cen­ter Foun­da­tion was es­tab­lished to ed­u­cate pro­fes­sion­als and the pub­lic about eat­ing dis­or­ders.

Now with 19 fa­cil­i­ties through­out the coun­try, Ren­frew con­tin­ues to op­er­ate as a fam­ily owned busi­ness with Sam Me­naged as pres­i­dent and CEO, his wife Pamela work­ing in pa­tient ac­counts, and his daugh­ter, Vanessa, as vice pres­i­dent of pro­fes­sional re­la­tions and mar­ket­ing. Sam and Pamela are res­i­dents of Ard­more, while Vanessa Me­naged is a res­i­dent of Bala Cyn­wyd

The Fam­ily-Owned Busi­ness Award cer­e­mony was held Aug. 23, at which Sam, Pamela and Vanessa ac­cepted their award. The Philadel­phia Inquirer rec­og­nized more than 30 fam­ily owned busi­nesses in var­i­ous cat­e­gories at the event.

“At The Ren­frew Cen­ter, noth­ing makes us prouder than hear­ing alumni suc­cess sto­ries,” Sam Me­naged said. “Whether it’s the per­sonal let­ters we re­ceive or in­di­vid­u­als with whom we speak with, it is those sto­ries that re­con­firm our daily com­mit­ment of keep­ing Ren­frew a fam­ily busi­ness. By do­ing so, we are able to en­sure ado­les­cent girls and women strug­gling with eat­ing dis­or­ders re­ceive the high­est qual­ity of care in a warm and nur­tur­ing en­vi­ron­ment.”
