Truly Texas Room Service
Our Nutrition Services Department provides an innovative approach to patient dining called Truly Texas Room Service. Once you have been admitted and your physician-prescribed diet order has been sent to the Nutrition Services Department, a room service ambassador will visit you and explain how to order your meals and snacks.
The Truly Texas Room Service model means you can order “what you want, when you want it.” Your meal will be cooked to order and delivered to you within 45 minutes of your call. Our registered dietitian can help you with the guidelines of your prescribed diet. Just ask your ambassador to contact the dietitian for you.
We understand that there are times when your family or friends would like to have meals with you in your room. Your guests may purchase meal vouchers in the hospital cafeteria (cash or credit card), or by paying cash to the Truly Texas Room Service Ambassador who delivers your meals. Your Ambassador will be happy to discuss the room service guest tray options with you or your guests and will provide them with a regular Truly Texas Room Service menu for their meal selections.
Wise Health System also recognizes that there are often special circumstances that may prohibit family members or patient caregivers/sitters from dining in the hospital cafeteria. A caregiver tray will be served in the patient’s room at no charge if it is necessary for the caregiver or family member to remain in the room with the patient at all times.
Additionally, a parent tray will be served in the patient’s room if the patient is a child of 12 years of age or younger. In each instance the caregiver or parent may choose from the Truly Texas Room Service menu and may order at any time during room service hours.
The hospital cafeteria is another dining option for patients and visitors. The cafeteria grill serves up cooked to-order breakfasts and juicy hamburgers for lunch. The deli offers made-to-order cold sandwiches. A salad bar also is available.
Vending machines are located in the hallway on the first floor near the cafeteria and in the emergency room waiting area. Please remember not to eat or drink, if that is your physician’s order.
