Food Services

With room service dining, your child's meals can be ordered from the room service menu any time between 7 am and 7 pm daily. All menu items listed are available throughout the day. Your child's meal will be delivered within 45 minutes of placing your order, or at your requested time.

Our room service menus are designed to appeal to children and teens alike, with a wide range of choices. The doctor may have ordered a special diet requiring some changes to your child's normal diet. We are ready to work with you to select foods that fit both the doctor's orders and your child's appetite. Please remember that if your child is on a special diet, some foods listed on the menu may not be allowed.

Guest room service

The hospital offers a "room service" meal program designed specifically for parents or family members who wish to dine with their child during meal time. The service is available from 7 am - 7 pm daily and family members can order from the patient room service menu. The cost is $5 (one meal card) for breakfast and $10 (two meal cards) for lunch or dinner. Please ask a member of our unit staff to provide you with a brochure if your admission packet did not include this guest room service information.
