Wholesome, nourishing, and well-balanced meals are an important part of your treatment and recovery. Walker Baptist Medical Center makes every effort to provide nutritious meals that are prepared according to your doctor's orders.
The time your meal arrives varies depending on what nursing unit you are running on; however, breakfast hours are between 6:45 AM and 7:45 AM, lunch between 11:30 AM and 12:45 PM, and dinner between 4:00 PM and 5:15 PM. Occasionally your meal may be delayed if you are scheduled for a special test or treatment.
If you would like to have a family member or friend eat in your room with you, the unit security can make arrangements to have a reasonable priced guest tray delivered to your room. Visitor trays are not pre-planned on a day-to-day basis; therefore, menus are not available. Charges for guest trays are due upon delivery and are not covered by insurance. A breakfast tray is $2.50, lunch and dinner trays are $4.00 each.
The cafeteria, located on the first floor, offers hot meals, a salad bar, and desserts daily. Breakfast is served from 6:30 AM until 9:00 AM, lunch from 11:00 AM until 1:30 PM.
Walker Baptist Deli
The Walker Baptist Deli is located just inside the cafeteria and serves hot and cold sandwiches, hoagies, wraps, and personal size pizzas. The deli is opened for lunch from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and dinner from 4:30 PM until 7:00 PM.
Food and beverages are also available in the vending area, which is located in the hospital lobby and includes a generous seating area.
