Patient Meal Times

Nourishing, well-balanced meals are an important part of your treatment and recovery. Deaconess makes every effort to provide nutritious meals that are prepared according to your doctor's orders.

Meal times for patients vary throughout the hospital. However, you can expect meals to be served within the following ranges:

Breakfast:    7-8 am
Lunch: NOON -1 pm
Dinner: 5-6 pm

Your diet may change during your stay, and meals may be delayed depending on your scheduled procedures or tests. With most diets, you will be given a menu for the following day so that you may select what you'd like to have.

Guest Meals

Visitor dining is available in the Garden Cafe, located near the main lobby on the first floor of the hospital. Garden Cafe hours are 6:45 AM to 8:30 PM each day. The Coin Cafe, also located on the first floor, provides a variety of vending machine food items and beverages 24 hours a day. Other vending areas may be available nearby. Please ask a staff member for the area closest to your room.

Upon request, a guest tray can also be delivered to your room for a nominal fee. Please note that this service is billed to the patient and is not covered by insurance plans. Please ask our staff if you would like to make arrangements for a guest tray.

There is a Subway restaurant located on the first floor of the Deaconess Physician Center. Subway can be reached from the hospital without having to exit by using the second floor elevators near the pedestrian overpass that connects the parking garage to the hospital. Additionally, there are many well-known restaurants located near the hospital and throughout Evansville. A staff member can provide directions if you prefer a certain restaurant.

If you have other questions about patient or visitor dining, please ask our staff.
