Catering to You

Baptist DeSoto Is Now Catering to You

Catering to You is Baptist DeSoto's new patient dining service designed specifically to support patients’ health, quality of life, and the recovery process during their hospitalization.

Shortly after admission, patients are greeted by their catering associate and introduced to the Catering to You service. We personalize your menu selections close to mealtimes based on your needs and desires, adding a special touch to your meal service.

Over the course of each day, catering associates interact frequently with their patients--one hour before each meal to work up a menu, when they deliver trays, during catering rounds to ensure each patient’s satisfaction, and at tray retrieval.

An exciting and unique aspect of Catering to You is that the catering associate is consistently assigned to the same unit, subsequently becoming part of the health care team, working closely with both nurses and registered dietitians.
