“We really want…

Hospitals hope that sending healthful food to patients’ homes will keep them from coming back”

“We really want to help make a lifestyle change for the patient. Patients will say “I don’t want to change my diet. I have been eating this way my whole life.’ The problem is they have been eating that way their whole life.’’
~Dr. Lana Tsao, Director of Advanced Heart Failure and the Coronary Care Unit at St. Elizabeth’s Medical Center
