Food Services

The Food service department at Spectrum Health Ludington Hospital strives to provide wholesome & nutritional meals to both our patients and our guests.

Patients at Spectrum Health Ludington Hospital choose their meals from a room service menu.  Know as “At Your Request” (AYR), the room service concept provides patients with a menu of breakfast, lunch and dinner items as extensive as many restaurants. However, the vast majority of items have a “heart healthy” symbol next to them.

There are nearly two dozen entrée and grill items in the lunch and dinner sections, plus build-your-own pasta and deli sandwich selections, and various salad and dressing combinations. These are complimented by dozens of side dishes, beverages, condiments and desserts. Breakfast selections are also varied.

Patients order meals by dialing “EAT” (328) on their room phone. Any item can be ordered as long as it complies with care prescribed by the patient’s doctor.  Meals can be ordered any time between 6:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. Up to three meals can be ordered in advance.

Exceptions are made for patients with particular dietary restrictions specified by their doctors. If a patient requests something not available within their diet, they are offered suitable alternatives.

In addition to the standard menu, a variety of special diet choices are provided, including those for diabetes, cardiac, renal (kidney), and a full section of liquid diet items. Even pureed items are available for those with swallowing or chewing problems.

Guest trays are also available for family members and visitors who can eat right in the room with the patient.
