Food and drink

At Great Plains Health, we know that one of the biggest factors in patient satisfaction is quality food. To this end, we offer At Your Request Room Service. Through this program, patients can receive the meal they want (within dietary restrictions), when they want it. Our hotel-like meal program provides a wide selection of food options that are warm and freshly prepared.

At Your Request Room Service

Available from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Step 1: From your hospital room, you (or if you require assistance, a nurse or family member) can use the bedside menu to select your desired meal choice (any entrée, side, beverage and dessert). The menu features a wide range of options, such as customized omelets, made-to-order salads, personal pizzas, grill items, and traditional entrées like meatloaf and lasagna. The menu also features selections for patients with dietary restrictions, such as liquid diets.

Step 2: You or your representative can place your meal selection by calling our diet clerk at Ext. 7522 (in-house). For convenience, the At Your Request Room Service diet clerk can take orders at any time from 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., seven days a week. He or she can take all three of your meal requests for the day (breakfast, lunch and supper) or one meal at a time. A diet clerk will check every order to ensure it is compliant with your doctor-prescribed dietary restrictions.

Step 3: You will receive your fresh, hot meal within 45 minutes of the request or at the time you specifically request it. If necessary, you may request a specific delivery time to accommodate tests, procedures or therapy sessions.

Family members and friends may join you during your meal by ordering their own food selections for just $6 per meal.
