Patient meals are prepared fresh daily, ensuring the finest quality. Patients are now able to choose their meals from our room service menus. Patients may order from 6:30 am-6:30 pm. All meals are prepared to order. Delivery times are as follows:
- Breakfast-7:40 am-8:15 am
- Lunch- 11:40 am-12:15 pm
- Supper-5:40 pm-6:15 pm
For the patient's convenience, they may also pre-order all of their meals for the day to be delivered at specified times. Family members may also order for their loved ones in the hospital by calling 319-863-2040. Ask the nurse or hostess for a copy of the menu to take home.
On occasion, your meal may be delayed if you are scheduled for a special test or treatment. Whenever possible, you will be served after your examination or test.
Your family members or friends may wish to dine with you at bedside. For this reason, the daily menu is offered at a nominal cost. Please check with your Nurse to order guest meals.
Vending machines are available 24 hours a day for snacks and beverages. The vending area is located just inside the South Entrance, on the South end of our campus. Please follow the directional signs throughout the hospital to locate the vending area.
