Expressly For You information drop-in is today

Augusta University Medical Center‘s Food and Nutrition Services Department will host a drop-in for the hospital’s new food service program, Expressly for You (EFY), on Friday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.

This is an opportunity for hospital staff to meet the Food and Nutrition Services team, watch an EFY video presentation, review the new menus, EFY ambassador uniforms and tray appearance and ask questions.

The drop-in will be held in the Terrace Cafe conference room. Light refreshments will be provided.

EFY is designed to enhance the level of food service and increase patient satisfaction by transforming the way patients select their daily meals. This restaurant-style program gives the patient the power of choice, making their stay more comfortable and restorative.

A pre-printed bedside menu with breakfast, lunch and dinner options is provided for the patient to review upon admittance into the hospital. Meal orders are then taken bedside by a designated EFY ambassador who will key the orders on a tablet computer using Healthtouchยฎ, a room service dining computer application.

Meals are delivered to the room by the same ambassadors.

This one-on-one approach to food service delivery enhances the patientโ€™s dining experience for each meal with friendly and supportive assistance from the ambassadors.
