Meals During Your Stay

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

You will receive a menu daily from your nurse. The menu includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner selections for the next day. You are asked to select your meals and give the menu back to your nurse. If you are placed on a special diet, nutrition services will modify your food to meet your dietary needs. Breakfast is served to patients between 7:00 and 8:00 a.m.; lunch between 11 a.m. and noon; and dinner from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m.
