Food & Meals
Our certified director of food services plans menus and oversees all food preparation. Registered dietitians work closely with your physicians and nurses in planning an appropriate menu for you. Each day between 1:00 p.m. and 2:15 p.m. a member of the food services staff will come to your room to take your breakfast, lunch and dinner order for the following day. Please take a few moments at that time to place your order. If you are not in your room at that time, you can place your order by calling food services at ext. 2163 and speaking with a supervisor. If food services is unable to reach you, they will place an order for you. Patients in the BirthPlace and Transitional Care Unit order from printed menus.
Food services personnel are located on patient floors to provide faster service to you. Beverages and snacks, if allowed by your physician and your special diet, also are available on each unit. If there is anything you need, please ask.
You may expect your meals to be delivered at the following times:
- Breakfast: 7:30 a.m. to 8:30 a.m.
- Lunch: 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
- Dinner: 4:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m.
Guest trays are provided for family members and friends at a cost of $4.00 per tray. Please inform the staff member taking your order that you would like to order an additional meal or call food services at ext. 2163.
Please remember that your physician determines the type of diet you need. Certain medications and/or the type of therapeutic diet may alter how food tastes to you. If you are on a special diet, check with your nurse or doctor before eating foods brought to you by guests and visitors. The food services department can accommodate most special requests, if allowed within your therapeutic diet. Whether you want a kosher meal or a light evening snack, our staff is happy to serve you.
