Patient Meals

University Hospitals Portage Medical Center offers room service to our patients, providing an excellent dining experience.

Room service menus are located in patient rooms. Patients are able to order from a wide variety of food choices* at times that are convenient for them. Once selections have been made, please call the UH Portage Medical Center room service representative at extension 72390 from a hospital phone. The room service representative will assist patients with menu selections, based on nutrition orders the physician has written.

A family member may also order for the patient from an outside phone by calling 330-297-2390. Food orders can be placed up to five days in advance.

We ask that visitors check with the nursing staff before bringing outside food into patient rooms. UH Portage Medical Center is not responsible for food brought in from outside sources.

*Menu items may be limited for those on a special or restricted diet.

Patient Advocacy Program

One way we work to ensure a positive hospital experience is through our dynamic and responsive patient advocacy program. Experts in patient advocacy are on-call to answer questions, address concerns, expedite hospital services and provide emotional support. Our patient care advocates can also help patients resolve any issues that may arise during hospitalization. These may include:

  • Helping patients communicate with doctors and other caregivers
  • Explaining policies and procedures
  • Advocating for patient safety
  • Processing lost item reports
  • Providing general information about the hospital and the local community

We encourage patients to first communicate directly with their nurse, doctor or other care provider. However, when a patient or family member prefers to discuss concerns with a third party, the patient care advocates are on-call. In addition, members of the hospital administration are always available during regular business hours and may be reached by calling the hospital operator.
