Cafeteria Dietary Services

Dietary Services at Marion Health

Our goals are to serve you appetizing meals while you are a patient in our facility and to provide you with an explanation of any special diet your doctor may prescribe. Although you will not receive the menu to complete in advance, you will be visited daily by a hospitality associate to review your menu selections for the next day. We have plan selections; however, if you do not like a particular offering, alternate choices are always available. We will do our best to accommodate personal preferences, but we cannot change a physician-ordered diet. Should you be out of your room and not available to talk with the coordinator, you will be sent preselected meals.

Patient meal service times are:

  • Breakfast - 7:00 a.m. to 8:30 a.m.
  • Lunch - 11:20 a.m. to 12:40 p.m.
  • Dinner - 4:40 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

If you would like education on your special diet for home or you need assistance with diabetes management, please tell a hospitality associate, or feel free to call Nutritional Services at (765) 660-7130.

Each unit has a stock variety of snacks and beverages available from your nurse, upon request.

If you are not satisfied with the quality of your food or service, please inform your hospitality associate. Thank you for allowing us to serve you!

A meal tray for a guest may be arranged if you desire. Please inform your nurse or catering associate if you would like to order a meal. These meals need to be ordered in advance and payment for them ($5.00) made in the cafeteria (Allspice Cafe). Guests cannot select from the menu but will be served the preselected meal.
