The Dietary Department prepares and serves meals to the patients, guests, staff, and visitors of the Hospital. It also provides initial and ongoing dietary education to patients, as well as staff. Patient meals are served according to their physician’s written orders with dieticians’ approval. Patients with Special Dietary Needs are given specially prepared meals to suit their needs.
The Dietary Department is staffed with full-time registered dietitians who not only ensure the nutritional needs of patients are met, but also maintain high kitchen standards with regard to sanitation, production, and service to patients.
The Dietary Department now also accepts ordered meals to all private stations between 5:00 am to 7:00 pm. This Room Service allows the patient’s watchers, or their guests, to order off the Dietary Department’s “restaurant-style” menu, at their convenience.
