Patient Meals

Patient meals are ordered by room service. This lets you order what you want when you want it.

How does "Room Service" work?

  • After the doctor orders a diet for you, you will get a menu. If your diet changes, you will get a new menu. If you did not get a menu and are ready to order, call *33 (only works in your room) or 963.2222. An operator will help you order.
  • You may order 6:30 am – 7:30 pm. Breakfast is served all day. Lunch and dinner items are served 11 am – 7:30 pm.
  • After you make your choices, call *33 or 963.2222. A Call Center Operator will take your order. Your tray will come in about 45 minutes.

If you have questions about your meal, ask to talk to the Room Service Ambassador. Or call *33.

Would you like a visitor or family member to eat with you?

  • Guests may order meals at the same time you order your meal.
  • Your guest needs to go to the cafeteria to pay for the meal before it is delivered. When the tray comes, the guest has to show the receipt for the meal.
  • Guest trays are $6.95 each. A guest tray coupon booklet may be purchased for $30 (good for 5 meals).

Ordering ahead of time OR from outside the hospital

  • If you want to order meals ahead of time or place an order for more than 1 meal at a time, call the Call Center Operator at *33 or 963.2222. Tell the operator what times are best for you to eat.
  • Your family can order your meals even when they are away from the hospital. Call 317.963.2222 or toll-free, 1.866.500.4314 to order a meal.
