What will I eat when I am a patient at UAB Hospital?

Question:

What will I eat when I am a patient at UAB Hospital?

Answer:

We offer hotel-style room service to inpatients at UAB Hospital. Your meals will not be automatically delivered unless requested. Instead, you should order from the room service menu in your room any time between 6:30 am and 7:30 pm. Just dial 4-MEAL from your room phone and place your order. A call center representative will assist you, and your meal will be freshly made to order and delivered within 45 minutes. If you are receiving insulin, please notify your nurse before eating. A family member or friend may also place an order for you by dialing (205) 934-6325 from an outside phone.

UAB is one of few hospitals in the nation offering room service dining options, and it is the only one offering select menu items created and prepared under the guidance of renowned local chef and James Beard-award winner Frank Stitt.
