Meal service prepares breakfast, lunch, dinner and supper for the patients while they are in hospital. Lunch and dinner include hot main course, salad and dessert. If you prefer, you may also go to one of the cafeterias using a meal ticket you can get in the ward. Wards have also a snack available.
Food is prepared in compliance with a five-week menu. Most patients can have normal hospital meals. In addition to the basic menu, we serve a variety of special diets including structurally altered diets, gluten-free diet, vegan diet and different kinds of allergy and intolerance diets.
