Find Effective Nutrition Services at Southcoast Health
The Southcoast Nutrition Department offers both inpatient and outpatient services. Our clinical dietitians are registered and licensed and are members of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
Our clinical dietitians work with the patient’s medical team to provide the best nutrition care while they are in the hospital. They offer comprehensive nutrition assessment, intervention and education to patients and their families. They also work with food services staff to ensure patients are offered foods that are within the patient’s prescribed diet.
Southcoast Registered Dietitians offer individual nutrition counseling and follow-up care to aid in maintaining overall health as well as managing medical conditions through dietary changes.
Outpatient counseling requires a referral from the patient’s physician. Referrals can be sent to the Central Scheduling Department. Southcoast physicians may also enter an “Ambulatory Referral to Nutrition Services” in Epic. Download the Counseling Request Form.
