ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  Hospital food is getting a makeover at Palmyra Medical Centers in Albany. Patients will soon be offered "At your Request Room service dining."

Any time the kitchen is open, patients can order from a menu. The dining area in the main cafeteria will be updated with more choices.

And Palmyra Food Services Director Tim Underwood, who used to own The Rocket Restaurant, says he hopes to change the way people feel about eating at the hospital.

"Unfortunately, food service and healthcare hasn't always had the best reputation so by improving the standards of food service and getting them to enjoy their food, also it is greatly required for their recovery because if they're not eating, they're not getting nutrition," said Underwood.

At your Request Room Service will begin at Palmyra next year.
