To help employees make healthier nutritional choices throughout the workday, Baylor’s employee wellness program has removed sugary drinks and fatty food from cafeterias and vending machines and made it easier for employees to eat healthy meals at home through healthy “minute meals” available for purchase in cafes that can be cooked in less than 15 minutes.

Dining options across the Baylor Medical Center-Dallas complex include the Truett Café and Espresso Impressions coffee/pastry shop in the Truett Hospital, the Atrium Market in Roberts Hospital, Café Charles and the Latte Hope coffee bar in the Sammons Cancer Center and A Beat Above Café in the Hamilton Heart & Vascular Hospital.
