We want you to eat well while you’re with us. We offer a variety of convenient, healthy, and affordable dining options for patients and families at the hospital.

There are also a number of restaurants within a short driving distance.

Meeting your nutritional needs

When you arrive at the hospital, our dietician will perform a nutritional assessment. Your doctor will make sure that your diet is aligned with your medical needs.

If food restrictions or special diets aren’t a concern, you can order meals off a menu at certain times of the day.

We’re happy to accommodate ethnic, religious, or other special dietary restrictions.
