St. Joseph in Towson Introduces Room Service

St. Joseph Medical Center, Towson, Md., has become the first hospital in the Baltimore area to introduce room service for patient meals. Patients can select food, in keeping with any dietary restrictions ordered by their physicians, from an extensive room service menu. Patients place orders with the room service operator, and the food is delivered to their rooms approximately 45 minutes later. Patients may pre-order up to three meals in advance. The room service menu offers a complete breakfast section, main courses for lunch and dinner, sandwiches and desserts. The room service program is designed to accommodate patients’ varied tastes in food, increase patient satisfaction and reduce food waste. For more information, contact Vivienne Stearns-Elliot of St. Joseph at 410/337-1536.
