The nation’s largest inpatient and residential facility providing care for people with eating disorders is opening in Dedham next week. Walden Behavioral Care moved to Dedham after being housed in a unit of Children’s Hospital in Waltham. The new space, which is about three times the size of the prior unit, will accommodate growing demand for the service with 82 beds. The grand opening is scheduled for Oct. 21, although residential patients began moving into the facility on Thursday.
