SWRMC cafeteria offers great meals for great prices fo public h BY Martha B. Jacob The Brown County Press Where can residents find a great meal for a great price in Brown County? Surprisingly the answer to that question would be the cafeteria at Southwest Regional Medical Center (SWRMC) in Georgetown. Karah Stanley is the director of food and nutrition at SWRMC and admits that the food in the hospital cafeteria just might be the best meal and the best value in town. “Our head cook, Connie Seip has been preparing homemade food for the hospital for over 17 years,” Stanley explained. “She and her coordinator, Cindy Donell are two of the finest cooks you’ll ever meet. They take great pride in their recipe’s, their preparation and the freshness of their meals.” The cost of the meals from the cafeteria ranges between $3 and $3.50 and are available for take-out. The cafeteria is often used by the public for meetings or banquets and can accommodate more than 50 people. “Our staff offers specials every day,” Stanley said. “For example, on Mondays we offer vegetarian entrees. We call it ‘Meatless Mondays, and we provide customers with nutritional information on that meal. In the summertime we offer soft-serve ice cream and frozen yogurt which is very popular.” Stanley said that at one time the cafeteria was a very popular place for the community to enjoy a meal, but numbers have decreased in the last couple of years. “I think with all the changes that have taken place with the hospital recently,” Stanly added, “I don’t think people realize our cafeteria is still open to the public. Each day we offer at least two entrees and a lot of fresh items

that can sometimes be hard to come by.” Stanley explained that Brown County is considered part of what is called the ‘Food Desert’, which means an area has very little access to really fresh foods like low fat foods, whole grains or in general, healthier items. “People today are looking for healthier options,” she said. She said that the cafeteria always passes it’s health department evaluations with flying colors in cleanliness, something the staff is very proud of. There are currently seven employees who operate the cafeteria which includes Stanley. “Many of our meals are made from scratch,” Stanley said. “For example, today (Wednesday) we’re offering buffalo chicken casserole, tomato soup, grilled cheese, baked potatoes, vegetable blend and cauliflower polonaise. Tomorrow, Thursday we’ll be having BBQ ribs or roast beef, mashed potatoes with gravy, green beans or

That’s what we’re all looking for these days.” Stanley explained that she is a registered dietitian and is always available to answer any questions from people with diabetes, high cholesterol, overweight issues or hypertension as well as regularly seeing out-patients. She also plans all the meals for patients at the hospital. She said the cafeteria offers ice tea, water, coffee or milk to drink but added that soft drinks are available throughout the hospital. Healthy snacks such as lowfat string cheese and low fat yogurt. “I’d like for everyone in the community to know that this isn’t just your run-of-themill cafeteria food,” Stanley said with a smile, “this isn’t bland food, it’s really good food that everyone enjoys. We would like for everyone to come and join us for lunch any time. I can almost guarantee they will enjoy their meal.” Entrance to the cafeteria, which is located on the lower level, is made through the
