Recognizing the importance of healthy food choices and your general well-being, our Nutrition and Food Service staff put all our efforts into providing you with high quality meals. Please notify your dietitian of any food allergies, food intolerances or cultural food preferences you may have. We will make every attempt to satisfy your needs.
Hotel style room service
Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center is pleased to offer hotel style room service for patient meals. This service is an extension of our commitment to providing excellence in patient care.
- Choose your foods and beverages from our hotel-style menu provided by the nursing staff.
- Call ext. 8888 to order between the hours of 6:45 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. daily.
- No set meal times: patients can choose what they want when they are ready to eat.
- Items are fresh-cooked to order.
- Preparation and delivery to you in less than 45 minutes.
Patients can choose a wide range of options, including customized omelets, salads made fresh daily, and traditional “comfort foods” like pot roast, oven-roasted turkey, or pasta with sauce. Our room service menu also features selections for patients with dietary restrictions, even for those on a liquid diet.
Nutrition is an important part of your care and well-being. Our call center staff will call your room following our peak ordering times for breakfast, lunch, or dinner if you have not ordered a meal – just to see if you would like something to eat. Patients missing meals may be seen by a dietitian to assess for any barriers you may have with eating and offer you guidance with food and beverage selection as needed.
If a patient is unable to order for any reason, we prefer family members to assist with meal selection since they usually know more about the patient’s food preferences and eating habits. Family members or designees may place meal orders for patients by calling 716-845-8888 from outside of the hospital. Orders for meals can be placed in advance. Our Nutrition and Food Service Staff are happy to assist patients unable to participate in room service if they do not have family available to assist them. Please contact our team at ext. 8888 with any questions.
Visiting family and friends may also order from our room service menu and receive their meal in your room. Guests meals must be pre-paid by purchasing a voucher from the cashier’s station in our Sunflower Café (located on the 1st floor of the main hospital). Our vouchers are completely refundable. We are happy to offer this convenient, economical meal service option to our patient visitors and guests.
