Nutrition and a Healthy Lifestyle

Whether you want to drop a few pounds or elevate your personal condition with healthier lifestyle choices, our Registered Dietitians at Shenandoah Medical Center can offer you expertise, resources and support.

Our Registered Dietitians and support team work with acute care patients found to be at nutritional risk. All acute and skilled patients are assessed by the Dietitian in a timely fashion. Care is coordinated with the health care team and all patients are regularly followed up on to monitor patient progress.

Outpatient visits are arranged through a Doctor’s referral. Once the Dietitian receives the referral, you will be contacted to set up an appointment time for a nutrition consultation. Outpatients check-in at the SMC Clinic.
