On Monday, Mercy Hospital becomes what is believed to be the first hospital in the country to offer room service. ''Some research suggests that giving patients control over their meal times and the range of food they want to eat can positively aid recovery after surgery.'' Mercy has also introduced an information management system to ensure all meals are appropriate to medical requirements. ''This has resulted in a broad menu consisting of dishes that the patient, and even their family members, can enjoy.''
