Room Service is the new way for patients to receive meals. You can call Room Service when you are ready to eat, and your meals will be delivered within 45 minutes. Our phone lines are open from 6:45 a.m. to 6 p.m. for food. You may call until 7 p.m. to request cold sandwiches and beverages. To order your meal, make your selection from the Room Service Menu provided, then call ext. 6325. Your order will be taken by a member of our clinical staff in the Food Service Department. Not all menu items are appropriate for all diets, and you will be informed of this when you order. While you are a patient, your meal times or choices may be altered due to laboratory tests or other procedures. If you are placed on a special diet, your menu will be adjusted to reflect your dietary needs. Your nurse or a dietitian will discuss these changes with you. Please be assured that your suggestions and comments about the dietary service will be appreciated.
Local telephone service is provided free. If you have a problem with the bedside telephone, dial O and the operator will assist you. Relatives and friends may call you by dialing the switchboard at 798-8100. The operator will connect callers to your extension. In order to protect your privacy, the St. Elizabeth operators will not furnish your direct number to callers. Public telephones are available on each floor and can be used by visitors for outgoing calls. Use of cellular phones is not allowed in areas where there are patient monitoring systems. Cell phones are permitted in Main Lobbies.
