TriStar NorthCrest Medical Center offers a wide variety of services related to food and nutrition including in-patient dining, cafeteria dining for visitors and staff, and specialty coffee served at The Sip! coffee bar.

Inpatient Dining

In-patient services offer planned and balanced meals, calorie counts, food and drug interaction education, nutrition assessments, dietetic counseling, and education resources for specialized diets as ordered by the provider. Out-patient services also offer counseling and education regarding specialized diets related to disease and nutritional well-being. These services are fee based and may be covered by some insurance plans. Certain disease states can be significantly improved through diet control and lifestyle changes. For this reason, your primary care provider may make a referral to a dietitian for counseling regarding weight loss, lowering fat and cholesterol, diabetes meal planning, or any number of diet educational needs.

The standard patient menu can be found in our Patient and Family Guide. Patients with dietary restrictions will have meals varying slightly from this menu to account for their physician-ordered diet.
