About Your Hospital Stay

We Care About Your Nutrition

An important part of your recovery is having proper nutrition for your health needs. The Food & Nutrition Services department provides meals prepared in accordance with your doctor's orders. Patients are encouraged to rely on hospital services for their food and beverages.

Please advise your nurse of any cultural or religious food preferences. In the event that you or your family bring food into the hospital, please contact your nurse to ensure that it meets your dietary restrictions and can be included in the record of your food and liquid intake.

There is a Registered Dietitian assigned to each unit to take care of your nutritional needs and to provide nutrition education when necessary.

For the convenience and comfort of our patients, Valley Presbyterian Hospital offers kosher and gluten free menu options. Patients also may request food services in addition to scheduled meals, which include three meals and three snacks daily.
