Dietary Services
All of your meals are prepared by our Food and Nutrition Services Department according to the dietary instructions given to us by your physician. If you are here for an extended stay, a food service representative will visit you to determine your food preferences and to answer menu questions.

Some patients have allergies or intolerance to certain foods, as well as specific likes and dislikes. If these have not been identified on your order, please notify the Food and Nutrition Services Department at extension 3737 or notify the food services representative who delivers your trays. Telephone messages are answered from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Nutrition Counseling
Registered Dieticians are on staff to provide nutritional education regarding therapeutic diets and nutrition assessments for patients. If  indicated, your nurse or physician can order these for you.
