TORONTO, Aug. 19 /CNW/ - Nutritious food that patients want to eat plays
a vital role in their healing and recovery. North York General Hospital is now
showing strong leadership by providing patients with their choices of tastier,
more nutritious food. It is the first organization in Canada to offer the new,
innovative food service program, Steamplicity, which is vastly improving the
quality of the food patients consume and the service they receive -
encouraging them to eat well.
Patients in our hospital are visited by dietetic attendants who help them
choose their meals from an extensive, restaurant-style menu. The food is
freshly cooked and promptly served on the same floor where they are being
treated. The empty plates are the best indicator that patients who have tried
it are enjoying the new food.
What's on the menu: Following brief presentations about the program and
the results of its trial, a Steamplicity chef will be on hand to demonstrate
the cooking method and prepare a tasting of some of the appetizing menu
When: Thursday, August 20, 2009, 2:00 p.m. to 3 p.m.
Where: Academic Centre, North York General Hospital, 4001 Leslie Street,
