California hospital revamps its menu with comfort food, options

Sutter Medical Center in Santa Rosa is moving away from a trayline service and introducing a menu-style meal system by mid-year.

SANTA ROSA, Calif.Have you ever sat in a hospital bed craving pizza for breakfast, or maybe pancakes and fresh fruit for dinner?

Well, hotel-style room service will soon be available at Sutter Medical Center in Santa Rosa and later this year at Sutter's replacement facility, which is under construction on Mark West Springs Road.

The new food service is part of Sutter's effort to recast itself as Sonoma County's premier health care provider. The hospital giant is scheduled to open its new state-of-the-art, all-private-room hospital later this year.
