Nutrition and Dining

Like many other services in healthcare, the dining experience has changed radically in the last few years.  Jello is no longer the main entrée.  Our patients and their families are often delightfully surprised by the variety of choices and the value of the meals available at our Basement Bistro.

Our staff dietitian has designed a healthy menu with many select choices that are sure to satisfy the most discriminating palettes.  Our fare includes everything from breakfasts, soups, salads, sandwiches and lite lunches, to full meals.  You can even order your food to go.

In addition to the daily menu, our staff prepares weekly specials that are available to patients, employees and visitors.  Next time you’re in the neighborhood, be sure to stop by our Bistro and treat yourself to a delicious meal served by our friendly dietary staff.  You can experience today’s version of hospital food at the Bistro seven days a week, from 6:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

We also offer complementary coffee throughout the hospital in our lobby, family waiting area near our surgery department, as well as in the Bistro.

For our patients we provide on-call room service seven days a week.  Menus are available in each room.  Patients can order the food they want, when they want it.  Family members or guests may also order a meal. 

Gift certificates for the Bistro are also available.  The Bistro is located on our lower level and can be accessed by taking the elevator in the hall that is adjacent to nursing wing.  To order gift certificates or today’s special call the Bistro at 360-642-6341.
