Jean-François Naa, Chief Executive Officer of IHH Healthcare Malaysia, said, “The move to introduce this exciting new menu is to provide an extra touch of comfort to our patients while enhancing their overall hospital experience. Good food does not only assist in the recovery process – it also uplifts one’s spirits and helps with their mental and emotional wellbeing.”

“We also want to challenge the perception of ‘hospital food’ by offering a selection of meals that are flavoursome yet full of nutrients. Patients can look forward to a new menu that has been carefully crafted based on their feedback while fulfilling their dietary requirements.”

As part of IHH Healthcare’s aspiration to Care. For Good., IHH Healthcare Malaysia has ensured that almost all of the ingredients used in the preparation of their dining options are sourced locally, to ensure that the items remain at their optimum level of freshness while reducing the organisation’s carbon footprint.

Chef Dato’ Fazley said, “The dishes are inspired by meals that Malaysians used to enjoy back in the day. I wanted to ensure that patients across IHH Healthcare Malaysia hospitals would feel an element of ‘home’ in their food but with a touch of modernity.”

“The dishes are low in calories, sugar, salt and even oil. Certain fresh ingredients have been purposefully selected for its high amounts of antioxidants. All of these are factored to ensure that patients recover as well and as quickly as they can.”

The new dishes will be prepared by in-house chefs across all 16 IHH Healthcare Malaysia hospitals, who have been trained by Chef Dato’ Fazley. Each hospital brand will feature a different menu for their patients.

We believe this is a game changer as Gleaneagle Hospital Offers Special Menu for Patients by Chef Dato Fazley Yaakob. ‘Hospital food’ now is more delightful, tasty and yet nutritious. This is the vision of the IHH Healthcare Malaysia as well as Gleneagle Hospital to offer patients a great meal with the return of a smile after meal.
