Food That’s Good and Good For You!

Perhaps one of the biggest misconceptions of hospital care is that the food has to taste bad.

Our dietary staff strives to provide both variety and quality with their meals. Meals are tailored to maintain our patient’s individual restrictions, as determined by our licensed dietitian. In addition to providing meals for our patients, our diet also supplies meals for our physicians, staff, and visitors. In total the department provides more than 88,000 meals each year.

Our dining room, the Prairie Breeze Cafe, is open to the public for breakfast and lunch. Lunch is highlighted by daily chef specials, prepared by our own in-house experts. Public hours are 7:00a.m. – 8:30 a.m., and 11:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., grab-and-go items are also available throughout the day.

RGDNS (Registered Dietician Guided Nutrition Services)

Our registered dietitian promotes the utilization of diet and lifestyle changes to treat or manage chronic diseases such as high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, and obesity.

Depending on the patient’s needs, both group education and individual counseling is available, highlighting the importance of diet, regular exercise, and living a healthy lifestyle. Counseling is available by appointment, and is covered by many insurance companies with a physician’s referral. If your consultation is being referred by a physician, the registered dietitian will contact you to schedule your appointment once the referral is received.
