Achieving Balance in the Food Service
& Nutrition Manager Role

Marianne Katusin

Director, Support Services
Halton Healthcare
Oakville, Ontario

As a former student & graduate of the CHA Learning’s Food & Nutrition Management program,
I have been fortunate to have various roles in Healthcare Food Service. The program provided me with the required knowledge, skills and practical learning experience to excel in food service procurement, food systems management and operational food service management. The ability to apply my knowledge and learning to day-to-day operations has been extremely valuable. The potential opportunities are unlimited in our industry!

In addition to my faculty role at CHA Learning, I am the Director of Support Services at Halton Healthcare – in Oakville, Ontario. In this role, I am responsible for Patient Food Services, Environmental Services, Portering, Waste & Linen and the Support Services Call Centre.

Halton Healthcare is comprised of three community hospitals: Georgetown Hospital, Milton District Hospital and Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital. These hospitals care for more than 325,000 residents and serve more than half a million patient meals a year with a commitment to providing “exemplary patient experiences, always.” Championing the procurement and use of fresh, locally grown foods, my Food Service has led change across Ontario’s food services industry by partnering with a network of Ontario food manufacturers and producers. This partnership has been instrumental in developing new nutritious food options for hospital menus and providing patients with personalized meal delivery options, including the award-winning “Call to Order Room Service” program.

I have worked in healthcare for 30 years in various roles. I was proud to be the project lead for Halton Healthcare’s award-winning “Good for you…Locally Grown” project, recognized by the Greenbelt Fund for putting more Ontario grown and produced foods on hospital menus. My education includes a Bachelor of Applied Arts in Administration & Information Management, a Diploma in Food & Nutrition Management from CHA Learning, the Lean Healthcare Green Belt and a Certificate in Project Management for Health & Social Services. I am also an active member of the Canadian Society of Nutrition Management.
