Inpatient Services

cookingDuring your stay at HCI's cancer hospital, a registered dietitian evaluates your nutrition needs and coordinates them with doctors and other health care professionals. The dietitian is also available to answer any nutrition questions that come up during your hospital stay.

Meals are provided through room-service style for patients who stay in the hospital. Each patient receives a restaurant-style menu upon arrival that is tailored to his or her nutritional and dietary needs, such as diabetes or food allergies.
