Nutrition Services


Our patients benefit from room service and 5-Star menus based on each patient's needs.

Our healthier options follow the My Plate recommendations. My Plate is a program from the U.S. Department of Agriculture that offers nutritional guidelines and recommendations:

  • 50% of the plate has fruits and vegetables
  • Offer new flavors from culinary herbs, spices, and light sauces
  • Have locally-sourced seasonal choices when available
  • Include Mediterranean-style items with beans, legumes, and whole grains
  • Range from 495 - 594 calories
