Dietary Services

At North Carolina Specialty Hospital, we provide the highest standards of care, which includes serving delicious, fresh, high-quality meals as patients begin their recovery. Our full-time Chef and Registered Dietitians oversee menu development and food production. We are proud to offer patients nutritious, 5-star restaurant-quality meals. 

With Dine on Your Time, our hotel-style room service program, patients are able to order meals any time between 7:00 am and 7:00 pm. Patients will find restaurant-style menus in their rooms that correspond to their physician-ordered diet. Our patient menus offer a wide array of food choices and include heart-healthy options, in keeping with our hospital-wide wellness program, Choosing Well.  Visitors may also order Guest Trays for in room delivery at a reasonable price.   

Patients and their visitors can call to place their meal orders with the touch of one button on their pre-programmed room phone, and our dietary staff will work with them to create individualized menus tailored to their preferences and dietary restrictions.  

In addition to providing patient meal services, we also serve a delicious breakfast and lunch for NCSH employees, staff and visitors in our Café (see below for hours of operation).  A weekly menu is conveniently posted in the hallway outside the Café entrance.  While not listed on the menu, we also offer a daily salad bar at lunch.  Visitors are welcome to join us under the sky lights in our beautiful Atrium or at one of our outdoor, umbrella-shaded tables.

It is our pleasure to offer quality meals at competitive prices.  Cash and credit cards are accepted at the register.
