Meals and Snacks


For patients admitted to the hospital, we offer a pre-selected menu featuring a special each meal. These menus are posted for the week in your room. If the Special does not meet your needs, there are alternate choices that you may select. We also offer Kosher and Vegetarian menus to patients on request. A clinical Dietitian is available to address your nutritional needs. For these services, call 24504 (inside the hospital) or 585.922.4504 (outside the hospital).
