Introduction

Food and Nutrition Department forms an integral part of the hospital management. It is entrusted with the responsibility of conducting nutritional screening, counseling and provision of wholesome diet to patients based on their needs while their stay in the hospital. Food and Nutrition Department consists of dietitian which provides expert and evidence based advice in order to assist in the dietary management of medical conditions and the promotion of good health. Nutrition is both a preventive and therapeutic science. we cover areas including diabetes, nutrition support, weight management, renal, cancer, neurology and pediatrics etc.

Good nutrition is a vital component in the complex process of recovery from surgery or illness. we are sensitive to the patient's vulnerability to malnutrition during treatment and hospitalization. Malnutrition can be a major cause for poor immunity and susceptibility to infections. The Department plans and supervises the selection and preparation of therapeutic diets for patients consistent with their needs during hospitalization. We ensure that food is cooked and served under extremely hygienic conditions under the supervision of dietitians; to assure good quality and freshness.
