At all Ministry Health Care hospitals, nutritional counselors, dietary and support staff take great care to provide for the nutritional needs of patients, families and visitors. Menu choices for patients and guests with special nutritional needs are readily available. At your service, many facilities provide a form of “room service” where patients make their meal selections at a time most convenient for them. For individuals with dietary restrictions, food choices are carefully monitored by registered dietitians who assess nutritional value, caloric intake and the appropriate balance of foods. Cafeterias are open during customary meal times — with soup, salad, sandwich and other items also available during extended, non-peak dining hours. The convenience of nearby vending supplements cafeteria offerings.
