Inpatient Meals

Food Services provides room service to inpatients every day, from 7 am to 8 pm. Call (617) 732-7120 to make an order, and the meal will be delivered within 45 minutes. For patients unable to place their own order, assistance will be provided.

All menu items are available throughout day. For patients on specially prescribed diets, the Registered Dietitian from Inpatient Nutrition Services will review their meal order to ensure that selections are appropriate. Any recommended modifications will be discussed with the patient. We are also happy to assist in meeting dietary requirements for patients with kosher, vegetarian, or gluten-free diets, or patients who have food allergies.

If you have any questions about your food, the menu selection process or your special diet, please call (617) 732-7120 while in the hospital.
