Medical Nutrition Therapy

Medical Nutrition Therapy provides nutrition assessment and education for both inpatients and outpatients. Through consults/referrals from health care providers, a Registered Dietitian provides dietary consultation. Patients range from infants to elderly. The Registered Dietitian also oversees the development and implantation of the hospital’s inpatient menu. The hours of operation are from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. On weekends and holidays the Registered Dietitian carries a pager, and is available for nutrition consults as identified by the physician.
