Food and Nutrition Services is dedicated to providing patients, staff and visitors at AMMC as well as the surrounding communities with competent, creative and compassionate services. Our department seeks to integrate clinical nutrition services with delicious food and excellent, hospitable service.
Food and Nutrition Services provides regular and therapeutic diets, in accordance with physicians' orders and state/federal regulations, to inpatients and outpatients who require meal services. A seven-day selective menu cycle is in use at AMMC. Delicious, Nutritious Cafeteria Meals and Special Diets are available for both employees and guests.
(Open three times daily for meals, seven days a week.)
Breakfast: 7:00 a.m.-8:30 a.m.
Lunch: 11:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m.
Dinner: 5:30 p.m.-7:00 p.m.
Catering services are also provided for special functions within the hospital and in the community.
The most important "ingredient" in providing excellent food and nutrition services is the quality of our staff. We are proud of our team of clinical nutritionists who are licensed dietitians, professionally trained culinary staff, and our dedicated long-term staff of servers, nutrition assistants, hospitality aides, clerks, porters, supervisors and managers. A high proportion of our staff is certified in food safety and sanitation training. Food is prepared fresh on a daily basis. We use state of the art food safety techniques and quality control systems to ensure that all food is safe and delicious.
An on-going Performance Improvement Plan monitors food service operations and nutrition services to ensure that only the highest standards of quality are met at AMMC.
