Patient Meals and Nutrition Services at UH Bedford

Our Expressly For You Personal Service DiningSM Program allows you to choose what you wish to eat from our chef’s special menu. It’s simple and works like this:

  • A Nutrition Services assistant will come to your bedside and take your order selections for the next meal.
  • Please let us know if you have any food allergies or preferences. Your meal will be verified for special dietary restrictions and prepared according to your request.
  • Your meal will be delivered to you at scheduled times on your nursing floor. If you need help setting up your bedside table, opening containers or dining, just ask the Nutrition Services assistant who delivers your meal for assistance.
  • Meals can be ordered in advance. Simply inform the Nutrition Services assistant that you would like to place your order for future meals.

Kosher and gluten-free meals are available upon request – just ask your nurse or Nutrition Services assistant.

Nutrition Services: Dial 735-FOOD (735-3663), or 440-735-3663 from outside the hospital

Guest Trays

Visitors who would like to order a meal and eat with a patient can pre-purchase a meal in the Café. The visitor simply asks the cashier for a $5 guest tray and pays by cash or credit card. Be sure to save the receipt! The visitor can then order from the Nutrition Services assistant when he or she visits the patient. When meals are delivered, the receipt is exchanged for a guest tray.
