Dining and Nutrition

Patient Meals

Wholesome, well-balanced meals are an important part of your treatment and recovery. We strive to provide nutritious meals that are prepared according to your doctor's orders.

When you receive your breakfast tray, you will be able to select your meals for the following day. Please mark your menu so it will be ready for pick-up. Our staff is available to assist you in selecting your meals, if needed. Your physician may prescribe a special diet for you during your stay; your menu options will reflect these special orders.

  • Breakfast will be delivered to your room between 7 and 9 a.m.
  • Lunch is delivered between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m.
  • Dinner is delivered between 4 and 6 p.m.

Family members may purchase meals in The Orchards Cafe or Garden Cafe. Guest trays can also be sent to your room. Ask your nurse for help in making this arrangement.
