The Patient Food Services department consists of a specialized team of Supervisors, Cooks, Receivers, Clerks and Food Service Workers who collectively work together to offer a 2-week selective and non-selective menu. Due to the diversity of patient needs, we offer a variety of meal service styles, including tray service, dining room/table service and buffet style service. Meal selections are also offered in some areas. Most patient care areas also have food service pantries that are accessible 24 hours per day.
Upon admission, clinical staff will obtain any food allergies and assign a proper diet.

Please speak to your nurse if you have any questions or concerns regarding your diet or to request a visit from Clinical Nutrition Services.
