In 2012, St. Charles Hospital became the first of only two hospitals in the nation to earn an Achievement of Excellence award from the American Culinary Federation. The award recognized the hospital’s food and beverage program for demonstrated excellence and passion for the culinary arts.
St. Charles Hospital's patients, visitors and employees enjoy food and dining options that defy cliches about hospital food and food service. The Hospital's culinary award winning chefs create entrees and daily specials utilizing fresh, never frozen ingredients and original, sought-after recipies. Healthy, high-quality food is prepared throughout the day and St. Charles Hospital is equipped to accomodate a wide variety of individual preferences and special dietary needs.
Dining Options for Patients
Patients admitted to St. Charles enjoy customized, hotel-style room service where patients call and order what they’d like to eat, when they want it. In addition, a supply of snacks for patients is kept on the rehabilitation units.
Patients who have an extended stay at St. Charles may want a family member or care giver to bring in their favorite foods. While this is encouraged, St. Charles asks that it be discussed with the members of the patient's health care team prior to bringing in the food. If a patient is on a specialized diet due to swallowing difficulties, the speech-language pathologist should also be consulted to ensure that certain foods are safe. If a patient is on a medically prescribed diet, certain inappropriate foods can present a health concern.
