|Food & Nutrition Services|
The department of Food and Nutrition Services is committed to providing quality food items to ensure maximum nutritional intake for all patients. A selective menu is available to all patients upon request. Dietetic technicians are available to assist with menu selection and to ensure all special requests as well as religious and ethnic food preferences are honored.
Trained hosts/hostesses will deliver meal trays as scheduled:
Each patient care unit has between meal food/snack items available for patients who may have missed a meal due to medical tests or procedures. Please contact your nurse or hostess to request food items.
Registered Dietitians provide medical nutrition therapy as appropriate to the condition and treatment needs of each patient. The dietitians actively participate in patient care rounds and performance improvement activities to ensure complete nutritional care for the duration of each patient’s hospital stay. The American Dietetic Association's Nutrition Care Manual is provided here for use by RCRMC health care staff.
Patients requiring ongoing nutritional care are referred to a dietitian at the nearest clinic upon discharge from the hospital. A physician referral is required.
Café RCRMC is located on the first floor of the Medical Center. A variety of food and beverage items are available for purchase by hospital employees and visitors on a daily basis. Hours of operation are as follows:
Any/all hospitalized patients choosing to visit the cafeteria must have a special permit and must dress in a robe and slippers. The permit may be obtained from your attending nurse on the unit. Patients presenting without the permit and/or not in proper attire, will not be allowed in the cafeteria.
