Patients: A Nutrition Services staff member will work with you to select your meals based on your plan of care. Many snack and beverage selections are also available on your patient care floor.

We care about the foods you eat – good nutrition is important to your healing. We believe that any diet can include a variety of foods with balance and moderation. We also appreciate the diversity of your tastes and beliefs. With this in mind, we challenged our professionally trained chefs to create a menu that has something for everyone. For our Patient Dining menus, we have chef specials that change daily and items that are available every day. Much of our menu is made in-house, from scratch; we also source sustainably and locally whenever possible. Menus are available to view here:

During your stay, you can order custom meals based on your individual tastes. You can orders meals with a hospital-provided tablet or with our servers, who will visit you in your room. Professionally trained chefs prepare your meals and our servers deliver them at the time that works best for you.

If you have specific concerns before, during, or after your stay, please contact us at

Thank you for dining with us!
