Food & Nutrition 

Delivering freshly wholesome prepared meals to patients and staff prepared in a safe, sanitary facility is the objective of the Food &
Nutrition Department. Meals at Hannibal Regional not only nourish but are an integral part of the patients’ program of care. Our food preparation team strives for personal service that is unmatched in the area.  Each year the Food & Nutrition Department serves approximately 300,000 meals, of which over 70,000 are to patients.

Our staff of Registered Dietitians monitor any special nutritional needs patients may have and are available to answer questions during a patient’s hospital stay. If needed, a dietitian will provide information concerning dietary restrictions or precautions upon discharge.

Meals are available to hospital staff and visitors at the Courtyard Cafe. All meals are prepared in Hannibal Regional’s central kitchen by well-trained and qualified personnel and services are provided in a manner consistent with the hospital mission by offering heart-healthy meal choices freshly prepared by our expert staff.
