for the quality of the food it serves to its patients

(Arnold Vanhecke, AZ Groeninge food quality supervisor)

"When patients get visitors to their room, the first question they get is how they are doing. And inevitably, the second one will be 'How was the food?' We already improved our food quality over the past years, but now we believe that we have reached an even higher level now, which is satisfying, for the chefs who are working here too."

(Tiffany Schiettecatte, Hospital patient)

"I think it's important to have tasty food, it motivates me to get better. Recovery is easier when the food is good. When the food is bad, it's something you don't look forward to, which makes it harder to recover."
