About the dietetic department

The dietetic department is mainly concerned with the diet of hospitalised patients, but anyone requiring advice on diet or nutrition may also seek advice.

Within the Europe Hospitals we have a broad and varied mission:

Regarding the patient during his hospitalisation

  • We teach the patient how to follow a specific diet
  • We can assess malnutrition. (National plan on nutrition and health)
  • We guide the patients receiving oncology
  • We prepare meals and make adjustments based on:
    • The pathology
    • The medical requirements 
    • The patient’s choice (whenever possible)
  • We serve varied, balanced meals on a daily basis, prepared by our chef using fresh quality ingredients, based on the wishes of the patient
  • We carry out quality control and assure optimal hygienic conditions on the preparation and serving of our meals
