Patients on regular diets can select their own choices from RCHD’s daily menu. Menu items are chosen by our Dietary Supervisor with the guidance of our dietitian to ensure a variety of healthy foods to suit popular tastes.
Here are some of the most frequent special diets that doctors order for their patients at Rankin County Hospital District:
