Compassion underpins everything we do at Providence. For our patients with cystic fibrosis (CF), this means doing everything we can to support their increased nutritional needs.
For many years, there was a kitchen on the CF floor at St. Paul’s. But the limitations of an aging building meant it had to be replaced with an exam room and research area.
Dietitian Kathleen Lee stepped up with an idea for mobile kitchen carts: each cart has a fridge, a microwave, and a kettle. Patients can stock them with their favourite high-protein, high-fat foods and access them 24/7.
In short? On the 8th floor at St. Paul’s, don’t be surprised if compassion looks like a pepperoni pizza with extra cheese.
