DMC is excited to announce that we are partnering with Metz Clinical Management as our new dining service provider. Effective January 14th, Metz officially began managing our dietary services. Our staff will remain in place while Metz will provide management services and guidance to our dietary department. We are excited about the changes and looking forward to the healthier food selections. Stop by and checkout our updated dining room and menu selections.

The Dietary Services area provides a well-balanced, nutritional meal for each patient, following the orders of the physician. Menus are planned in accordance with the approved dietitian plan of the hospital.  The dietary department provides meals for both the hospital and behavioral health patients. The cafeteria has seating for 50 people.

The dietary department serves a blend of home-cooked foods and ready-prepared heat & serve items that are characteristic of the south. Food is served in an attractive manner, as effectively as possible, at both safe and appetizing temperatures, following accepted practices. The department makes every attempt possible to consider patients’ likes and dislikes.  Dietary provides meals to families and employees through the cafeteria. The Dorminy Medical Center Cafeteria is also open to the public and we extend an open invitation for you, our community, to join us for breakfast and lunch. You are welcome to dine in and enjoy the friendly atmosphere of our cafeteria or carry out is available for your convenience.
