Healthcare Services Group (HCSG) based out of Pennsylvania has been providing dietary services for Connally Memorial Medical Center since August 2011. The recently implemented new menus for the patients along with upscale room service for each meal, allow the patient the freedom to order what they want, when they want it. Entrees are cooked fresh and delivered quickly to the patients, shortly after they order. “Room service allows the patients a choice in an environment where they have very few choices. As well as Connally Memorial Medical Center, Healthcare Services is striving to give excellent customer service,” says Grant LaFleur, Director of Food & Nutrition. Patients are offered and served meal choices by a personal select host or hostess in an effort to make every patient’s dietary experience here at Connally Memorial Medical Center a special one.

Along with new services for patients, what was formerly Hilltop Diner has become Classic Café. The newly renovated Classic Café offers entrée selections, salad bar, grab & go sandwiches and salads as well as sandwiches, desserts and free coffee through the day. Classic Café is available not only to patients, their families and visitors but also to the general public for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Many local physicians also frequent the café, such as emergency department physician Dr. Rex Poole. “As an ER Doctor I spend a lot of time at the hospital, and that means I eat a lot of hospital food. As well, I have worked at many facilities in the past and have sampled many different kitchens.” Poole goes on to say, “The food service at CMMC is particularly good, and the staff members are top notch. They take very good care of my patients. I would recommend the cafeteria at CMMC to those with special nutrition needs or anybody looking for something good to eat.”

CMMC is fully accredited by the Texas Department of Health and offers emergency care, surgical services, home health services, wound and hyperbaric oxygen care, and rehabilitation services.
