Food and Nutrition Services is efficiently run by a Certified Dietary Manager/Certified Food Protection Professional (CDM/CFPP), a specialist who has passed national board exams and maintains credentials through continuing education courses. The CDM/CFFP works together with the registered dietitian to provide quality, nutritional care for patients and clients.

We provide the full spectrum of inpatient and outpatient Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT). Inpatient MNT is individualized to meet each patient's unique needs while providing healthy, appealing meals. Outpatient counseling provides custom designed nutrition education that promotes healthy choices within each client's food preferences and lifestyle.
