Food and Nutrition Services

Wholesome, nourishing and well-balanced meals are an essential part of your treatment and recovery. Meals are delivered to your beside, prepared according to your doctor's orders.

Patients are generally served breakfast between 7 a.m. and 8:30 a.m., lunch between 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m., and dinner between 4:45 p.m. and 6 p.m. Occasionally your meal will be delayed if you are scheduled for a special test or treatment.

You will receive a daily menu from which to select your meal choices for the following day. If you have difficulty making menu selections, a registered dietitian is available to assist you.

If you would like to have a friend or family member eat in your room with you, a reasonably priced guest meal may be ordered through Nutritional Services. Payment will be collected at the time of your discharge from the medical center.

Please check with your nurse before having food brought from home or restaurants.
