Patient Meals

North York General Hospital offers all inpatients an innovative food delivery system called Steamplicity. It provides vastly improved patient-focused food quality and service. Steamplicity's focus is on the nutritional needs of each patient as well as the quality components of freshness, taste, texture, temperature and presentation.

Greater selection and service:
  • A dietetic attendant visits the patient one to two hours prior to lunch and dinner and takes the meal selection in person from a restaurant style menu. Patients choose from up to 20 entrees. All selections are verified to ensure they comply with the patient’s diet.
  • Minutes before a meal is delivered to a patient, the meal is cooked in a specially equipped pantry for food preparation located on each patient floor, allowing food freshness to be maximized. This quick cooking time at the point of service enables more flexible meal times — and allows food service to be a patient focused experience.
More diversity-sensitive meal options:
  • Meal options reflect the diversity of the patients we serve in terms of age, from young children to older adults, and ethnicity.
Note: Please check with your nurse or a dietitian before eating gifts of food because they could interfere with your treatment.
