At Johns Hopkins Children’s Center, meals for patients are “at your request.” Chicken nuggets at 8 a.m.? French toast at 6 p.m.? No problem. Patients can order snacks and meals — what they want, when they want it — from a child-friendly menu, daily from 7 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. For a nominal fee, families, too, can order from the in-room menu and have their meals delivered along with their child’s.
On the psychiatry unit, all meals are served buffet style, a service made popular in the adult psychiatry unit at The Johns Hopkins Hospital.
On all other general patient units in The Charlotte R. Bloomberg Children’s Center building, patients (or their families for them) place their meal orders by phone to nutrition services, where nutritionists who have knowledge of any diet restrictions or allergies can suggest equally delicious alternatives.
Certified kosher meals are available, and a kosher hospitality suite is located in Blaylock 175. Please ask your nurse for more information.
Throughout the hospital, there are several eateries where families and visitors can pick up a quick cup of coffee or carry-out, or sit down for a leisurely meal.
