Abstract

In an effort to improve patients' satisfaction with health-care foodservice, many hospitals are implementing a selective menu program.

The results of this study indicate that patients' perceptions of food and service dimensions are significant predictors of overall satisfaction with hospital foodservices. Patients who opted for a selective menu program at high levels of frequency showed more satisfaction with Ihftselective menu program than those in the low-user group. "Food variety," "lasle," and quot;offering nutritional information about menu items" are the key drivers of overall satisfaction.
