Special nutrition needs require the expertise of a dietitian. Our registered dietitian is an expert in nutrition and can teach you how to improve your eating habits.

Nutrition counseling is especially helpful for people with the following health challenges or conditions:

- Congestive Heart Failure
- Failure to Thrive, child & adult
- Gallbladder Disease

- e chance of further difficulties and reduce the time the patient needs to stay in hospital.
Patients receive medical or surgical help with their conditions, but some have conditions that can also benefit from special diets. Eating more of certain foods, and/or avoiding certain things can help to control a patient’s symptoms. In some cases, by carefully monitoring what a sick patient eats and drinks, the dietitian can reduce the chance that patient will have problems in the long-term, and can establish and/or help maintain the patient’s quality of life.
