RALEIGH, N.C. -- When Lauren Heath learned she had to spend an extra day in Rex Hospital after delivering her baby girl in May, she wasn't complaining. "It means I get three more, really good meals," said Heath, 29, of Wake Forest, N.C. "The food is amazing." Instead of mystery meat and Jell-O, she enjoyed banana-nut pancakes, Caribbean grilled chicken salad, Philly-style cheesesteaks, orzo salad and baked potato wedges. With an extra day?s stay, she was looking forward to trying the hospital?s lime and ginger-glazed salmon. The food was so good that even her out-of-town mom decided to have her meals brought from the hospital cafeteria.
