Food and Beverage Services

Food and nutrition are an integral part of medical treatment. Eating a balanced and nutritious diet is important to aid recovery. Our food service team provides a variety of quality in-patient meals according to each patient’s nutritional requirement.

Our dietitians and food service team work closely to develop meals that cater to our patients’ dietary restrictions and medical conditions, as well as their religious and cultural needs.

Our in-house kitchen is located in the hospital building. It is open from 6:00 am to 9:00 pm every day. We prepare meals using the centralized food service system, which allows us to closely supervise and maintain high food quality and safety for our patients. Our aim is to provide nutritious meals without compromising taste and quality.


Food Safety Is Our Top Priority

We strongly encourage you to

  • Inform our nurses if you have any food allergy
  • Consume your food while it is hot, or within 2 hours from the serving time. This is to ensure freshness & minimize the risk of foodborne illness.
