Inpatient Room Service

The Food and Nutrition Department at RCH offers an inpatient room service menu with in room dining available from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.  There are a variety of choices depending on the prescribed diet your physician orders. Our goal is to provide a nice meal that patients will look forward to receiving that is healthy, appealing and appetizing.  Our goal is to offer more progressive style foods, innovative foods and lots of healthy choices. We use the fresh vegetables and fresh meats concept when preparing meals for our patients and staff.

Family members of patients are welcome to order from the patient dining menu, or can visit the retail cafeteria for more food options.
