Thomas Hoffman retiring from food and nutrition

Thomas Hoffman, executive director of food and nutrition with Nebraska Medicine, has announced his retirement effective today (Feb. 9).

Paul Baker will serve as interim manager for food and nutrition.

Hoffman said he has enjoyed many years with Nebraska Medicine and UNMC, “but now it’s time to take another path.”

Said Hoffman, “I started as a young chef in the late 1990s and have advanced in my career with Sodexo to a client executive and executive director of Food and Nutrition with Nebraska Medicine. There are so many experiences I will remember and people I will miss. I appreciate each of you, I am blessed with the many friendships I made along the way.”
