Hospital food. It immediately brings out a stereotype of bland taste. But Good Samaritan and Bethesda hospitals in Zanesville are out to change that. They introduced a made to order menu system in June, and results are off the chart. The new system allows patients to order off a much larger menu when they’re hungry. The old system just brought all the meals at a specific time. The process starts with the patient placing an order. It’s so sophisticated it even guards against people on special diets. Hospital officials said the made to order menu actually reduces cost. The old way had them wasting food. Now that all the food is made to order, everything is preserved, or eaten.
