Patients at Ascension Via Christi Hospitals St. Francis, St. Joseph and St. Teresa can order their food by phone from a restaurant-style menu.
Nursing staff will either assist a patient who cannot order or the nurse will request an automatic food tray. A visiting family member may also order several days of meals for a patient in advance.
Family members also can order a guest tray for $10, paying by cash, MasterCard, Visa or Discover when it is delivered.
Meals are delivered any time between 6 am and 8 pm
The patient's order is matched to any specific diet orders. If a patient hasn't ordered a meal, the nurse follows up with the patient.
