We want your stay at St. Joseph's to be as comfortable as a hospital stay can possibly be. Learn more about what to expect during your hospital stay.
Patient Rooms & Meals
When you are admitted to the hospital, you'll be assigned a room in an area of the hospital that specializes in the type of care you will need. If your clinical needs change during the course of your stay, it may be necessary to change your room accordingly. Most rooms in the hospital are semi-private. Private rooms are available for patients needing isolation due to their illness, those in critical care areas and those in our maternity unit. All inpatient rooms are equipped with adjustable beds, bathroom emergency bells, call buttons, direct dial telephone, and televisions.
We make every effort to provide patient meals that are appealing as well as nutritious. Your meals will be prepared according to your doctor's orders, including special diets. Registered Dieticians are also available to discuss your diet.You will be provided a daily menu to select your meals for the next day. The schedule is:
Breakfast 7 to 8 a.m.
Lunch 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Dinner 5 to 6 p.m.
