Program Description

At CHA, our food service department plays an important role in the satisfaction of our patients and colleagues. Food service team members enhance the patient stay by delivering three quality meals a day to the patient’s bedside.

Meal orders are taken bedside and entered electronically via a tablet computer. This system interfaces with the hospital medical system, allowing for our hosts/hostesses to understand each patient’s unique dietary needs. In addition, the food service department operates a recently renovated cafeteria that caters to staff members and the general public including a salad bar with fresh and local ingredients, hot soups made fresh daily, a deli station, and an entrée station featuring favorite dishes.
