Shands Cancer Hospital Dining Options

UF Health Shands Cancer Hospital exterior

Patient Meals

Each day, a Patient Nutrition Representative will come to the patient’s room and assist with meal selections. A paper menu will be provided upon request and for designated units. Contact a Patient Nutrition Representative at 4-3859 or 258-1810 with any questions or special food requests.

Special Dietary Needs

Check with a nurse or the Patient Nutrition Representative before offering food to a patient or, if you are a patient, before consuming foods that are not on the approved menu. Many patients are on special diets ordered by the physician because of the following criteria:

  • The diet may limit food and drinks due to tests or a medical condition.
  • Some medical procedures are necessary and the patient can’t be given anything by mouth (NPO) for several hours before the procedure.
  • The physician has diagnosed an illness that could be helped by diet therapy.
