The Food and Nutrition Services Department is committed to providing you with the highest quality service during your stay at Rush. A professional culinary team directed by our executive chef prepares your food. We will provide you with a variety of menu choices on our restaurant-style menu that will meet your nutritional needs and diet as ordered by your physician. Our floor hospitality staff is trained to assist you with your menu and make changes based on your individual needs. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to make your meal experience more pleasant.
Each day at lunch, you will receive a form on which you can make your menu selections for the next day. Special menus also are available to meet ethnic, religious, or special health needs. The menus include traditional favorites and chef's specials each day.
Snacks between meals are available at 10 a.m., 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. Please let your nurse or hospitality personnel know if you would like a snack. An evening snack cart also circulates on most of the medical and surgical floors.
We provide basic information about the diet your physician has ordered for you. If you would like additional nutrition information please let your nurse or hospitality personnel know so that we can arrange a diet instruction.
