Outpatient Nutrition Services
About the Clinical Nutrition Department
Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center & Children’s Hospital provides comprehensive nutrition counseling services for pediatric and adult clients of all ages. Our outpatient registered dietitians (RDs) have more than 70 years of combined experience in dietetics and are experts in providing medical nutrition therapy for a wide range of conditions as well as providing general wellness counseling and effective weight management plans.
The Spokane Outpatient Clinical Nutrition team includes a Certified Diabetes Educator and a Board Certified Specialist in Pediatric Nutrition. Our dietitians are registered with the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and are Washington State certified.
Why choose a Registered Dietitian?
A registered dietitian (RD) is an expert in nutrition through extensive education and training established by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. RDs hold a bachelor’s or master’s degree in nutrition and have completed extensive supervised practice at health care facilities and passed a rigorous registration exam.
Anyone can call themselves a nutritionist, but only an RD is qualified to provide personally tailored advice for managing chronic diseases, providing guidance navigating food allergies, sensitivities, and intolerances, and providing a safe and effective long-term weight loss plan.
