The Department of Nutrition

The Department of Nutrition helps patients to heal by understanding the nutritional status of inpatients and providing appropriate nutritional management and meals. We also do nutritional counseling (tutoring and group guidance) for those who need it as part of their treatment. The work of the Department of Nutrition is roughly divided into the business of clinical nutrition management and the business of food service management.
