Tift Regional rolls out room service

September 27, 2007

Tifton-- Don't turn your nose up at hospital food. Patients at Tift Regional Medical Center are now enjoying meals from a full room-service menu. The food service program gives patients a wide variety of food choices delivered by a staff of five-star hostesses. The program was implemented a year ago, and has become a huge success.


 "In providing them a menu they can select from everyday, what they want, when they want it, we have seen the satisfaction of our patients go through the roof. They have definitely appreciated being able to choose the foods they want, whether they are from the grill or a hot entree, or they are eating breakfast items at supper, or our pediatric patients are eating pizza at breakfast" said Clinical Nutrition Manager Kathy Lanier.

Staff members say the program will be a cost saver over the long-term, because patients will order only what they prefer, thus reducing food waste. The program is one of only three offered in the state of Georgia.
