Outpatient Nutrition Therapy
Healthy Eating for You and Your Family
Whether you’re looking to lower your cholesterol or blood pressure, better manage your blood glucose, lose weight, or increase your energy and prevent disease, Harrington’s Registered Dietitians can help. We will provide advice you can trust and help you and your family with strategies for healthy living.
Our Registered Dieticians, who specialize in the science of medical nutrition therapy and are licensed by the American Dietetic Association, provide counseling services. In addition to the personalized care you will receive, our staff is up-to-date on the latest nutrition research and will give you reliable nutrition information based on science, not fads. They will also work with you to create a customized exercise plan.
Before scheduling an appointment, consult your physician. A physician referral is required. Also, be sure to check with your insurance company to confirm the extent of your coverage.

You want a food service that’s convenient, tasty, and has healthy choices—and here at Harrington, our ServSafe-certified staff provides just that. Working with dietitians, we offer a full-service cafeteria with a variety of food items for patients, staff, and visitors.
Striving to ensure satisfaction, we regularly conduct patient/customer surveys in the café, and we consistently receive excellent feedback.
Harrington Café’s hours of operation:
For our patients, we offer room service, a hotel-like dining service. A representative from the Food & Nutrition Department will deliver a welcome packet to your room upon admission. This packet contains ordering information, information about the diet your doctor has prescribed, as well as your menu. Room service meals are available from 6:30 a.m. until 6:30 p.m. daily so you can order your meals when you want them. Also, for a small fee, you can enjoy eating with company by ordering a guest meal through our room service program.
Members of the nutrition staff are available to work with you to provide what you'd like while adhering to your doctor's prescribed diet. And we have dietitians on staff to answer your questions or concerns pertaining to your diet during your hospital stay.
