Patient Meals

Convenient Patient Meals at University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital

At-Your-Request Room Service

Our At-Your-Request Room Service program allows University Hospitals Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital patients to eat meals when they wish. It works like this: You place your meal order with our Nutrition Services Department any time between 6:30 a.m. and 9 p.m., and your meal will be delivered within one hour. You may place an order for one meal at a time or for several meals in advance.

Menus are kept on your nightstand (or can be requested from your nurse or the division secretary). Kosher and gluten-free menus are available too; just ask your nurse or call Nutrition Services.

Guest Trays

Visitors who wish to order a room service meal and eat with a patient can purchase a meal in advance through the Atrium Café. The visitor simply goes to any cashier in the Café and asks for a $6.50 guest tray, paying by cash or credit card. Please save the receipt. The visitor can then order his or her meal through the At-Your-Request Room Service line, just as a patient would. When meals are delivered, just exchange the receipt for the guest tray.

Kosher Dining

In addition to providing Kosher meals for patients, UH Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital offers Kosher-certified vending machines in the Atrium and Lerner Tower vending rooms for guests. A Kosher Hospitality Room on the first floor of Lakeside, operated by the Cleveland Bikur Cholim organization, offers Kosher snacks, microwaveable meals and beverages, and a place for quiet reflection.

Clinical Nutrition Services

Registered dietitians are part of each patient’s health care team, making sure all of your nutrition needs are met. Dietitians are available to provide diet education and answer patients’ nutrition-related questions.

Clinical Nutrition Services: Your nurse can contact our registered dietitians for you. After discharge, call 216-844-1499 to make an appointment with a registered dietitian. A physician’s referral is required.
