White Plains Hospital offers an innovative meal preparation and delivery system called Expressly for You. This program gives you great control over your meal selections. The basic premise behind the program is that you, the patient, will be visited by a Host who will tell you about your meal options and take your meal order. At meal time, the Host will assemble your tray according to your selections and deliver it to you.
Please feel free to request help from the Host if you find that you need assistance at mealtime in setting up your tray to make eating easier.
Your physician will prescribe a specific diet to meet your particular needs and your menu has been planned to contain the foods permitted. A Host will visit you and help you make selections which are in compliance with your prescribed diet.
If your physician or dietitian prescribes between-meal snacks they will be automatically delivered to your room at the appropriate time.
Certain tests mandate that you not eat for a period of time. When this happens, we will be certain to deliver your meal immediately after the test has been completed. Please order only the foods you plan to eat, so that accurate calorie counts may be taken when needed.
