Patient Meals

Dietary & food services

Food plays an extremely important part in your healthcare and recovery. Upon your doctor’s order, a registered dietitian will provide nutrition counseling. It is important that you follow a diet that is recommended to you by your doctor and dietitian. Please do not eat food prepared outside of the hospital unless approved by your doctor. The outside food could work against your treatment.

If you are scheduled for tests, your mealtimes may be changed. You will get your meal at the end of a test or at the next mealtime.

If you are patient in a general patient care unit, you can place your meal order from our Treat Yourself menu by calling extension 23085.

Inpatient meals are served during the following times:

  • Breakfast: Between 6:30 a.m. and 10 a.m.
  • Lunch: Between 10:45 a.m. and 3 p.m.
  • Dinner: Between 3:45 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.

We invite your visitors to eat in the UMC Cafeteria, located on the first floor of the Hospital.
