Meals & Nutrition
The Nutritional Support Services Department is a critical component in
the overall care of patients. Housed in the basement of the North Wing,
NSS staff provide meals for patients, families and employees.
Patients can eat what they want, when they want – just like home.
By calling extension 2328 (2EAT) from a bedside telephone, a room service
operator will take orders. Meals are delivered within 45 minutes or less.
A nurse or room service ambassador will introduce patients to the in-room
menu and help with ordering, if needed. For patients on a physician-ordered
restricted diet, the room service operators will guide them through the
process. The service is available every day from 7 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.
The NSS Department provides dietary consults with registered licensed dietitians.
The consults are conducted at the hospital for children and adults dealing
with diabetes, obesity, renal failure, cardiac care and other conditions
per doctor’s orders.
Our patient meal service is designed with you in mind. You can eat when
you want between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. and a room service
operator will take your order. Orders are typically delivered in 45 minutes
or less. Your nurse will introduce you to the in-room menu.
