    At Your Request: Room Service Dining 

    With At Your Request-Room Service Dining®, patients enjoy a unique dining experience similar to hotel room service. What makes this dining experience special is that patients can order from an extensive menu whatever they want–whenever they want–as long as the kitchen is open and it conforms with their physician-ordered diet. Customized meals are available.

    Each meal is freshly prepared and individually delivered to the patient's room within 45 minutes or less. Room service is available daily from 6:30 pm to 7 pm. Patients can request meals as needed each day during the hours of operation. Service Response Center attendants verify that patients are ordering on a regular basis.

    Nutrition Therapy

    Registered dietitians provide both inpatient and outpatient nutrition therapy and counseling for all disease processes. Registered dietitians also provide education and support for patients enrolled in Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation.
