Patient Services

The Food and Nutrition Department at Jamaica Hospital provides outpatient nutrition services to patients at the hospital’s Ambulatory Care Center and many of the MediSys Family Care Centers conveniently located throughout the community. Our outpatient Registered Dietitians assist patients to grow their knowledge about nutrition, wellness and healthy eating. An appointment with the Registered Dietitian consists of a comprehensive nutrition assessment, nutrition education, behavior modification counseling and goal setting. Each goal established is individually tailored to patient’s specific nutritional and medical issues. Our outpatient Registered Dietitians specialize in weight management counseling, diabetes, as well as pediatric and prenatal nutrition.

In addition, our Family Medicine Center offers a multi-disciplinary diabetic program on Thursdays with a Diabetes Educator. The educator can help patients better manage their diabetes and achieve their blood glucose goals by providing behavior change counseling, self management techniques and nutritional guidance.
