The Nutrition Services Department is committed to providing care that meets the nutritional needs of each patient. Our dietitians work in the treatment and prevention of disease using medical nutrition therapy (MNT). Individuals with a variety of conditions can benefit from MNT. Dietitians assist individuals in making behavioral and lifestyle changes that may impact long-term eating habits and health.

Medical nutrition therapy includes:

  • Nutrition assessments to determine your health risk as it relates to nutritional factors
  • Planning and implementing nutritional intervention that will benefit your health
  • Monitoring and evaluating your progress over a period of time

Another component of nutritional services is our food services. They take pride and care in delivering quality meal service and snacks that not only meet all texture and therapeutic guidelines but is appealing and tasty as well. Going the extra mile to honor specific preferences and demands is just one small part of what we do. Offering a select menu and off the menu choices helps provide patient satisfaction and improves their overall patient experience. The friendly staff often visits with patients to explain the menu or help complete their choices.

Taking pride in our responsibilities and performing with a smile is what we do best.
