Our Department of Nutrition provides outpatient nutrition services to help individuals with the management of specific dietary needs. Our dietitians can help with conditions like cardiac care, diabetes, weight management and other conditions. They provide individuals with care and education to aid in their recovery during their stay in the hospital and/or after discharge. A referral from your primary care provider may be helpful and necessary in certain cases.
The registered dietitians (RDs) at PeaceHealth Ketchikan Medical Center are nutritionists with special training in clinical nutrition. Their work is based on scientifically sound nutrition therapies.
