Outpatient Nutrition Counseling
NVRH offers outpatient nutrition counseling (medical nutrition therapy) by registered dietitians. With a referral from your healthcare provider, you may receive medical nutrition therapy for diabetes, weight management, high cholesterol, hypertension, eating disorders, gastrointestinal disorders, and many other nutritional issues. The registered dietitians are available to speak on nutrition topics to the community as well. To contact a registered dietitian call 802-748-7433 or 802-748-7490.
Inpatients at NVRH receive nutrition care through daily visiting from Certified Dietary Managers and supported by Registered Dietitian Nutritionists who are attentive to each individual’s nutritional needs and food preferences. Registered Dietitians are ready to visit patients who wish for nutrition information regarding their particular meal plan.*Note: Kosher food is available, however we are not a kosher certified kitchen.
