HMR Weight Management Services (HMR), a subsidiary of Merck, is a national company specializing in
weight loss and weight management. HMR Programs combine a structured diet, physical activity, and
behavioral lifestyle-change coaching, and are designed to help people lose weight while learning the
skills they need to keep it off. HMR programs are available in a clinic location or as an at-home option.
Founded in 1983 and headquartered in Boston, Massachusetts, HMR provides medically-based
programs and support services to clinics, hospitals, and major medical centers throughout the country.
When HMR first began, the goal was to offer dieters a sensible, healthy way to lose weight without
gimmicks or fads. Today, that commitment continues through an even greater range of programs that
enable fast, maximum weight loss.
