The Dietary department of Rice County District Hospital prepares more than 3,200 delicious and nutritiously balanced meals per month. Our experienced staff of eight employees includes a registered dietician to ensure meals are nutritionally balanced and meet the needs of varied special diets. We serve hospital patients, employees, along with residents in the intermediate care at the hospital and Noble Place Independent Living Community. The hospital also partners with community outreach programs, which provide meals to Lyons’ Head Start and Meals on Wheels.
