Change Starts Here
We hope that our patients will embrace some of the hospital's healthy
eating habits once they go back home.
But we also strive to make positive changes in the hospital, too. By introducing
healthier options in our hospital cafeteria, we are exposing people to
new ways of nutritious eating. We want to reach out to not only our patients,
but also their family members and our own employees.

To help you cut calories without compromising taste, we're offering
tasty soups with less cream and salt and all-natural juices. We have also
expanded our salad bar.
