Health Technologies Inc. (“HTI”), also known as Dining RD, announced today that it has acquired Columbus, Nebraska-based EZ Nutrition Consulting, PC (“EZ Nutrition”). Founded in 2003 by Elaine Farley-Zoucha, RD, LMNT, EZ Nutrition provides Registered Dietitians and Certified Dietary Manager consulting to senior living communities and critical access hospitals in the mid-west region.
Established in 1994 and based out of St. Louis, HTI provides online menu and software programs, Registered Dietitian consulting, and training services to 3,000 long-term care communities in 42 states. With onsite and remote consultation, its dietitians ensure services are compliant with state and federal regulations.
“This acquisition will allow us to expand Dining RD’s Registered Dietitian Consulting service and integrate our menu and software programs, ultimately enhancing the current services provided to EZ Nutrition clients,” said Carol Sapp, HTI CEO. “We look forward to strengthening Dining RD’s role as a leader in the growing long-term care industry and working with Elaine and her team. Together, we’ll continue to bring joy to the seniors we serve through food and dining programs.”
