Dear Piedmont Community,
Piedmont Hospital recently received unsatisfactory food service inspection scores from the Georgia Department of Community Health, Division of Public Health. For a hospital that is known for good food, this is a distressing blemish on what has consistently been a high quality service.
Piedmont Hospital takes great pride in the quality food service provided for patients, visitors and employees. In the past five years, Piedmont Hospital has scored a 94 or better in any food service inspection. In fact, the hospital scored a 99 on its last inspection 18 months ago.
Immediately following the most recent inspection, all deficiencies identified were quickly addressed and corrected. Piedmont Hospital has requested that the state re-inspect sooner than required. The Department of Community Health agreed and is returning on Wednesday, April 20, for re-inspection.
We want to assure our patients, visitors and community that the meals served at our hospital are prepared with the highest standards. We are confident that the re-inspection scores will reflect those standards and we will continue to meet the expectations to which our patients and visitors are accustomed.
Director, Nutrition and Food Services
