Your Hospital Visit


At Barnes-Kasson Hospital, nourishing and well-balanced meals are an important part of your treatment and recovery. Barnes-Kasson provides nutritious meals that are prepared according to your doctor's orders.

Your meal may be delayed if you are scheduled for a special test or treatment. You will be served after your examination/test as soon as your physician approves your meal service.

You will receive menus to select your meals for the next day. Please mark your menu so it will be ready for pickup. If you have difficulty making menu selections, ask for help. We will be glad to give you a hand.

If you are on a special diet prescribed by your doctor, you will receive menus designed for your needs. Restricted or special diets are closely monitored. If you are interested in guidelines for home use, the dietary staff will be happy to assist you.
