DiningRD, also known as Health Technologies, Inc., announced today that it has acquired Kittanning, Pennsylvania-based Armstrong Nutrition Management (“Armstrong Nutrition”). Armstrong Nutrition provides clinical nutrition and food service management consulting in a variety of healthcare settings including acute care, senior living, mental health, assisted living and memory care.
DiningRD also acquired Houston, Texas-based Dietitians for Health Care. Founded in 1967 by Cynthia Wolfram, Dietitians for Health Care is a post-acute, assisted living and memory care firm that serves the senior population.
Established in 1994 and based out of St. Louis, DiningRD provides software solutions, registered dietitian consulting, and training services to 5,250 senior living communities in 42 states. With on-site consultation, its dietitians ensure services are compliant with state and federal regulations.
“These acquisitions will allow DiningRD to further expand its nutrition and culinary services while enhancing the current services provided to Armstrong Nutrition and Dietitians for Health Care clients,” said Carol Sapp, DiningRD CEO. “We look forward to strengthening DiningRD’s role as a technology and dietary leader in the growing senior living industry and bringing joy to the resident communities we serve.”
