Your Hospital Care Team
In Mile Bluff's Acute Care Department, the inpatient care team is led by

During an inpatient stay,
laboratory services are available to patients 24 hours a day.
Nutritional services are also provided by the Food & Nutrition Department. Registered dietitian
nutritionists provide medical nutrition therapy to inpatients. Patients
can choose from a number of meal options that fit within their prescribed
diet, either from the room service menu or the available main entrée options.
Pharmacy services are also available to inpatients. Pharmacists and technicians prepare
