Dining In was introduced last week on the Postpartum, Labor & Delivery and Oncology suites. Over the next several months, all patient rooms will be phased in.
Dietary team members and clinical staff will visit those unable to order a meal. People on diet restrictions may also use Dining In; their meals will be prepared to their specific modifications. Guests who prefer not to leave a patient's room may also order meals.
“St. Joseph is continuously evaluating our services from a patient’s perspective,” said Kathy Krusie, CEO of St. Joseph Regional Health Center. “Dining In is part of our ongoing effort to provide patient-centered care and improve convenience.”
