Nutrition Services & Counseling
Henderson Health Care’s registered dietitian (RD) is licensed by the State of Nebraska to provide clinical nutrition services to Henderson Community Hospital patients, Legacy Square, and Rosewood Court residents and members of the community.
Dietitians work closely with physicians, nurses, and other professional staff to meet individual nutritional needs. All newly-admitted hospital patients are screened for nutritional risk and offered nutrition education as indicated.
The department provides nutritional assistance for medical conditions such as:
Wounds and skeletal injuries
The outpatient nutritional counseling program focuses on helping individuals learn to make healthy food choices and lifestyle changes. Weight management, sports nutrition, and eating disorders counseling is also available. A physician referral is not required for individual outpatient nutrition counseling.
Whatever your ambition — losing weight, increasing energy, changing food habits, preventing disease or complications from a current medical condition — outpatient nutrition counseling at Henderson Health Care provides you with the knowledge to help you succeed in improving your overall health.
Our goal is to encourage you to make gradual long-term changes in your eating habits and lifestyle, by providing support and advice along the journey.

“My husband and I were passing though on our way east to see family when my appendix ruptured. Luckily the hospital was a few miles away from our campground. The staff was very caring and attentive. I feel very fortunate that we were so close to this small, but wonderful hospital.”
