Overview of services

MarinHealth has been providing wholesome and delicious meals for patients for more than 60 years. We are proud to serve a community that thrives on a healthy lifestyle and celebrates all that our region has to offer. Our menu is carefully crafted to include local, organic, and sustainably-raised products whenever available. We also believe in delivering 100% customer satisfaction using state-of-the-art technology, and we utilize an electronic meal selection process that ensures safe and timely meal service.

Our registered dietitian nutritionists (RDNs) provide evidence-based medical nutrition therapy for MarinHealth patients, and are also available for outpatient treatment through the MarinHealth Integrative Wellness Center. They are true experts who develop an individual nutrition strategy for optimal outcomes, in and out of the medical center.

In addition to providing nourishing meals and exceptional nutrition care for our patients, we also serve staff and visitors to the Creekside Café.  The Café offers a variety of hot entrees, comforting homemade soups and grab-and-go salads and sandwiches, all prepared fresh daily by our team.

Martin – Executive Chef
I’ve been the certified executive chef at MarinHealth for almost 10 years and am a proud member of the American Culinary Foundation.  I oversee the recipes and production of meals for our patients, staff and visitors.  It’s my personal goal to make sure we not only meet our patients’ needs, but exceed everyone’s expectations!  When I’m not spending time in the kitchen, you can probably find me out one of the golf courses in Marin.

My experience at MarinHealth has truly been full circle – I was born here, volunteered here as a teen and have been a Nutrition Tech for nine years – a position I hope to retire from.  MHMC has inspired me to deliver professional and compassionate care and I am looking forward to working in the new hospital!

Every day is a new challenge and adventure, and I love working with the amazing staff at MHMC in taking the best possible care of our patients.

James – Registered Dietitian Nutritionist
I have worked at MarinHealth for nearly 3 years now. My passion is providing nutrition in the critical care setting, specializing in artificial nutrition support for those who cannot feed themselves. In addition to nutrition, I also have degrees in anthropology and Spanish – both of which come in handy when working with a diverse patient population. In my free time, I am either tending to my succulent garden or reading about manatees.
