Nutrition Services

The Nutrition Services Department at SMCH provides food and nutritional care to hospital patients, staff, families, visitors, and the Lake City Meals on Wheels programs.

Since 2008, patients at Stewart Memorial have ordered “what they want, when they want it” from our Room Service menu. Meals and snacks appropriate to each patient’s meal plan are delivered to the bedside by Nutrition Services between 6 a.m. and 6 p.m. daily. A patient’s guest may also order from the Guest Menu for a charge. Nourishments are available to patients after hours as needed.

The Junction boasts a fresh salad bar, deli sandwich bar, fresh fruits, soups and sides, with selections changing daily. Delicious desserts and ice cream are also offered. Complimentary coffee, hot chocolate and tea are always available.
