Inpatient Services

The inpatient dietitians at UP Health System - Marquette are responsible for helping our patients meet their nutritional needs and to also teach the importance of good nutrition for healing and long term health.

Working closely with each patients physician, the dietitian helps to determine the best diet for recovery. If a particular diet is to be followed after discharge, the inpatient dietitian meets with the patient and family members to provide teaching.
