RDs for Healthcare, Inc.
"Quality Personalized Service with Reliable Results."
RDs for Healthcare, Inc. is a California company of dietitians and office staff that prides itself on personalized and professional service for our extended care menus and consulting services. The concept started with one person, Terri Miladinovich, RD, who had the insight to combine these two services and form this company to meet a growing need. That was in 1985.
Terri had always wanted to help administrators by providing a service that would relieve them of hiring a dietitian to write menus and operate the food and nutrition department. By hiring RDs for Healthcare, Inc., the administrators would be guaranteed well written menus and a dietitian for their residents.
RDs for Healthcare, Inc. is known for prompt personalized service, proficient dietitians and tasty food which can be easily prepared. Our success can be measured in our excellent regulatory survey results and the longevity of our clients and staff. The company employees over 60 dietitians and provides services to over 500 long-term care clients. Many clients have been with RDs for Healthcare, Inc. over 25 years and some dietitians over 20 years. The systems developed over the years have stayed true to Terri's passion to keep it simple with home-like meals that are affordable to produce and taste great.
