At UPMC McKeesport, we are dedicated to providing our patients with exceptional care in a comforting, professional environment.
To ensure that you receive the highest quality food that meets your nutrition needs and food preferences, we offer a patient-controlled liberalized diet. Following your first meal, you will be able to select items from a menu within your prescribed diet.
Under the supervision of a registered dietitian, you will receive nutritious, attractive, and appetizing meals three times a day.
- Breakfast — 7 to 8:30 a.m.
- Lunch — 11:15 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
- Dinner — 4:15 to 5:30 p.m.
Nurses can order late trays for patients who are not in their rooms during these times. Guest trays are available for your visitors for a charge.
For more information — or if you have any questions or special needs — please call UPMC McKeesport Food and Nutrition Services at 412-664-2281. A hostess is available to assist you with any needs during meal times.
Registered dietitians are available to assess your nutritional needs and for individual counseling. Since your meals are prepared within the limits of your doctor’s orders, please check with a dietitian or your nurse before eating any food that is not served by our Food and Nutrition Department.
