Food & Nutrition Services

Nutritionally balanced meals and snacks are provided with consideration of your dietary needs, cultural and personal preferences. All meals are planned and prepared on the premises by a team of committed and trained staff members whose goal is to assure your satisfaction and optimum nutrition. As part of your medical care, your doctor may order restrictions on your meals as part of your individual treatment plan. Please let us know of any religious, cultural or personal food preference upon admission. Kosher meals are available upon request.

A specially trained group of dietitians will take care of your dietary needs during your stay. The dietitian assigned to your unit will be happy to speak with you about your dietary needs. If you have any special request, please contact your unit nurse who will request a nutritional consult on your behalf.
