Patient Meals

Patients are invited to select their meals from a variety of physician-approved diets. Our nutrition hostesses will assist you with all of your food needs, as well as any special requests, within your dietary restrictions. Your hostess is also available to answer any questions you may have about your meal selections.

Meals will be served at the following times:

Breakfast: 7:30 to 8:30 a.m.
Lunch: 11:45 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
