Food and Nutrition Services
Sierra View Medical Center of Porterville, CA
At Sierra View, we know that nutritional care is an essential part of the healing process, and prepare each meal for our inpatients according to their specific doctor's orders. Diet orders may be changed or delayed by doctors in anticipation of certain tests or medications.
Our nutritional care team includes a registered dietician and coordinates all of our patients' meal services. We do everything in our power to ensure that a patient's meal is enjoyable, while meeting his or her dietary restrictions. Additionally, patients may request to speak with a clinical dietician to discuss nutrition therapy and/or diet education needs.
For Family and Friends
We understand and appreciate your supportive inclinations to bring food from outside the facility to your loved ones. However, it is required that any food brought to our patients be first approved by a nurse or dietician who can ensure it is meeting the patient's dietary criteria.
Our Sierra View Medical Center Café is open to the public. We serve breakfast from 6:30 a.m. to 9:30 a.m., lunch from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., and dinner from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. We do welcome visitors to bring outside food to eat in our dining room, which is open 24 hours a day. Vending machines are also available around the clock throughout our facility.
