Catering Department

Welcome to The Catering Department Cork University Hospital. We are responsible for providing all food services to all patients throughout Cork University Hospital Campus. Delivering over 1.5 million meals each year, our goal is to serve nutritious quality and safe meals to all our Patients, Staff and Visitors.

We deliver on all of our patients’ dietary needs which includes tailoring menus to meet specific therapeutic, ethnic or special dietary requirements.
