Patient Meals

Sibley is proud to offer our patients Room Service Dining. From 6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m., Room Service Operators are available to take your meal requests. A hamburger for breakfast? No problem! Pancakes for dinner? Certainly! We understand that every patient is unique. That’s why we make your meals to order as you request them.

How Does It Work?

When you arrive in your room, a room service menu will be available at your bedside. This is yours to use for the duration of your stay. Once your information has been activated in the computer, simply pick up the phone and dial FOOD (x3663) from within the hospital. A room service operator will help you make your food selections in accordance with your physician-prescribed diet. Once your order is complete, we prepare your meal and deliver it to your bedside within 45 minutes. You may order meals and snacks according to your schedule, during our operations of service (6:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.).

Assistance With Ordering

Your nurse can alert the kitchen if you need for assistance with ordering. One of our room service operators is available to provide bedside ordering as needed. Family members can also call to request foods for patients who need help. Meals can also be scheduled in advance up to three days in the future. From outside the hospital, dial 202-660-6374.

Guest Trays

Guest trays are available for visitors using the same menu as our patients. Each tray costs $17 and foods may be selected from the entire menu. Charges will be billed to the patient room.

To order from inside the hospital, review the menu, dial the room service operator (FOOD, or x3663) and request your meal tray. We’ll deliver the tray to the patient room within 45 minutes or when requested. From outside the hospital, dial 202-660-6374.
