Outpatient Nutrition Clinic
The Outpatient Nutrition Clinic provides a variety of services to assist active duty members, their dependents and beneficiaries in optimizing health through nutrition. Programs include both group education and individualized counseling for disease management and prevention.

Patient Meal Service
For our inpatients, we provide a select menu and accommodate preferences and any necessary dietary preferences or food restrictions.

DGMC Dining Hall
The DGMC Dining Hall provides meal service to all medical staff, patients and visitors who are in the medical center over the meal hours in accordance with the authorized patron policy. To expedite staff feeding during the noontime "lunch crowd crush", a dedicated register line for all badged DGMC personnel operates weekdays from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. while the two remaining register lines are designated for patients, meal card users and on-call health care providers (physicians / nurses / medical technicians).

During the weekends, holidays and AMC-designated "Family Days," the Dining Hall offers meal service from 7 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and is closed for the evening. In its place, the 60th Force Services Squadron offers alternate eatery flyers that are posted just outside the DGMC Dining Hall doorway. You can also let us know what you think of our services by filling out a customer comment card during your next visit.
