The Patient Experience

Taking hospital food to a whole new level, striving to hardwire a restaurant experience for our patients. Giving them control of their meal selections in an environment where they have little control.

Acute Care

The Centra Culinary Group offers the majority of their hospital patients Room Service for all of their meal selections from 6:30am until 6:30pm daily. Whether you’re in the mood for a fresh-made sandwich or salad, hungry for comfort foods reminiscent of home or just want a refreshing smoothie, the culinary creators at each campus will prepare and deliver your meal they way you want it in less than an hour.  For those that wish to have their meals selected for them, we provide three fabulous meals prepared fresh daily by our culinary creations teams.  Click on menu to see our latest offerings….

Centra Culinary Group provides on-site training to old dominion job corps culinary students throughout the year.  Whether it’s prepping, cooking or serving, these student get to touch it, feel it and taste it – all in a high-volume high-energy environment.  Students are transported by ODJCC from their campus in Amherst to LGH, VBH and Guggenheimer kitchens a couple of days each week where the student completes a 6-hour shift.  The opportunity to remove them from the abstract world of classroom culinary knowledge and prepare them for the real world of restaurants is invaluable.

Centra Culinary Group partners with many different community groups and facilities to care for our community. Contact us if you are interested in partnering with us.
