Nutritional Counseling

At Salem Township Hospital a Registered Dietitian specializes in designing nutritional plans for a wide range of needs. Our patients include those who simply want to eat better, as well as those with health issues such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer, management of cholesterol, weight loss and other nutrition-related diagnoses. Individual meetings with a dietitian provide an opportunity to discuss person needs and establish a nutritional plan appropriate for each individual. Contact Salem Township Hospital Nutritional Services for more information or to schedule an appointment with a Dietitian.

Our goals are to serve you appetizing meals while you are a patient in our facility and to provide you with an explanation of and special diet your doctor may prescribe. Although you will not receive a menu to complete in advance, you will be visited daily by a catering associate to review your menu selections before your next meal. We have planned selections; however, if you do not like a particular offering, alternate choices are always available. We will do our best to accommodate personal preferences, based on our physician ordered diet.

Each unit has a stock variety of snacks and beverages available from your nurse, upon request. A meal tray for a guest may be arranged if you desire. Please inform your nurse or catering associate if you would like to order a meal. If you would like education on your special diet for home or you need assistance with diabetes management, please tell the catering associate, your nurse or feel free to contact nutritional services.
