Medical Nutrition Therapy

Medical nutrition therapy services provide nutritional diagnostic therapy and counseling services for the purpose of disease management.  These services are provided by a registered dietitian pursuant to a referral by a healthcare provider and are available to both inpatients and outpatients.

Cafeteria
765-932-7477

Guest trays for patient families may be ordered by calling the kitchen. The charge is $5.00 and will be collected by dietary when they deliver the tray. When the patient is a child, the hospital provides one tray free of charge to a parent or guardian.

Gift certificates to the hospital cafeteria are also available. These make a great gift and can be used for birthdays, holidays, or for someone who has a family member in the hospital. See Paula Mount or Dena Bills if you are interested.

Outpatient meals for those on a special diet may be ordered from nutrition services. Please contact Paula Mount for more information.
