Nutrition & Food Services

Nutrition and Food Services provides wholesome meals to patients, staff, physicians, volunteers and visitors.

Services include:

  • Purchasing, receiving, storage and preparation of food

  • Vending
  • Catering / Hospitality
  • Patient meal presentation

We are proud to employ competent, professional staff, allowing us to provide exceptional service.

“We value integrity, a caring attitude and commitment to quality”

Patient Meal Service

Once a patient's physician has ordered the type of diet needed, Nutrition & Food Service staff prepare patient trays from a hot/cold food cart taken to each patient care unit. This cart is stocked with daily menu choices and a variety of alternatives such as fresh fruit, yogurt and sandwiches.

HPHA proudly supports sustainability which includes serving the best quality Canadian sourced food, delivered to us from many local companies.

Medications and illness often affect taste buds, so a patient's appetite or taste may be altered. We encourage patients ask their  nurse to contact Nutrition & Food Services if this happens, so that we may assist in finding solutions.

A dietitian is available upon request to discuss diet, as well as to consult on all aspects of clinical nutrition including assessment, recommendations for nutritional management and implementation of therapeutic diets within the hospital.
