Food Service

CMH provides food services for patients and visitors at Citizens Memorial Hospital and the Kerry and Synda Douglas Medical Center. Catering services also are available to the public.

Nutritional Services

Hospital Patient Meals

Meals specific to each patient’s condition are an important part of the treatment plan and recovery. Citizens Memorial Hospital makes every effort to provide nutritious meals prepared according to the physician’s orders.

The staff serves patient meals from 6 a.m.-7:30 p.m. per dietary or patient needs and restrictions. A special test or treatment may delay a patient's meal. Whenever possible, the patient will be served after the examination or test.

Diet aides will enter the room with a menu for the current day and the next day. If a patient has trouble making menu selections, a member of the dietary department is happy to help. Patients and family members may modify or change the order on menus. Please dial ext. 6364 for assistance. If patients are on a special diet prescribed by their physician, they will receive menus tailored to their specific needs.

Nutritional Services looks for new and innovative ways to serve you better and attend to your specific dietary needs. The nursing staff will keep you informed and assist you with the ordering process.

Guest Meals

Family members or friends may buy a meal in the cafeteria and eat it in the patient's room. We also offer a guest meal delivered to the patient's room at the discounted rate of $5 per meal. Dial ext. 6364 to order a guest meal.
