Our nutrition services staff carefully monitors all patients admitted to the hospital. The clinical dietitian works closely with a team of physicians and other clinical staff to ensure an appropriate plan of care for all patients. Comprehensive nutrition screenings and assessments are provided to decrease health risks and reduce recovery time. The Clinical Nutrition staff also assists patients with food preferences and offers nutrition education.
Because a healthy lifestyle depends on a balanced diet to prevent or improve chronic disease, Morehouse General Hospital offers outpatient nutrition counseling by a Registered Dietitian. Our nutrition counseling is considered Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT), which can be filed with your insurance company. For our patients who do not have insurance, we offer a standard reduced rate. Individual or group counseling is available and is determined by hospital policies and medical diagnoses.
Note: A physician referral is required for nutritional counseling.
