The Nutritional Department at Prairie Lakes Healthcare System offers a variety of services for both patients and the public.
Our patients receive well-balanced, nutritious meals every day at Prairie Lakes Hospital through a program called "Room Service." Patients select from a menu of food options and place an order by phone. Nutritional Services staff members take the order, prepare the food items, and deliver the food to the patient's room. Patients find this option accommodating because they can order a meal when they feel like eating and they can order as much or as little as they like, within their diet restrictions.
The registered and licensed dietitians in the Nutritional Services department at Prairie Lakes Healthcare System provide nutritional counseling in a group or one-on-one setting. Their scope of services also includes dietary education for people with medical conditions such as cancer and diabetes; counseling for eating disorders; and a weight loss/management program.
The dietitians also provide Healthy Recipes on our website. Recipes have been modified for better nutritional value in a variety of categories. Click here to check them out!
For visitors, a public cafeteria is available on the first floor of Prairie Lakes Hospital offering a wide selection of hot meals, beverages, and snacks.
