Patient Meals

Wholesome, nourishing, and well-balanced meals are an important part of your treatment and recovery. McDonough District Hospital makes every effort to provide nutritious meals that are prepared according to your doctor’s orders.

Inpatients will be served breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Occasionally, meals may be delayed if you are scheduled for a special test or treatment. Whenever possible, you will be served after your test or examination. Your breakfast tray will include a menu from which you can choose your lunch, dinner, and breakfast for the next day. If you have difficulty making menu selections, a member of the nursing or dietary staff will be happy to help you. If you are on a special diet prescribed by your doctor, you will receive menus that are tailored to your specific needs.
