Our Philosophy and History

Your success today is rooted in our past. Renowned behavioral psychologist Dr. Peter Miller founded Hilton Head Health in 1976, as an alternative to “fat farms” and “fat camps.” H3 started as a four-week retreat operating out of Hilton Head Island’s Regional Hospital. Over the past several decades Hilton Head Health has evolved to include programs in weight loss and wellness with gourmet cuisine and luxurious spa services.

Upon securing our own location in the Shipyard Plantation, we introduced a huge campus that features everything you need to transform your life. We have a heated pool, a hot tub, wooden saunas, a relaxing courtyard for meditation, the full-service Indigo Spa, our on-site restaurant True Dining, the Healthy Cooking demonstration kitchen, fitness spaces for dancing, cardio, weight training, and suspension training, and more!

Our most recent advances include the building of our very own on-site 30-room Sweetgrass Inn, which opened in 2021, featuring accommodations that vary from comfortable hotel-style rooms to luxurious suites. Additionally, we have released our very own video streaming service called Hilton Head Health ONDEMAND, which is designed to bring our award-winning weight loss services directly to you, wherever you are!

Despite our enormous growth, our core philosophy has never changed. We are committed to providing an all-inclusive weight loss and wellness experience emphasizing the body and mind. No matter your individual health and wellness or weight loss goals our team is personally invested in your success. After all, your wellbeing is our reason for being!
