Room Service - Wholesome, nourishing and well-balanced meals are an important part of your treatment and recovery. Baylor Plano makes every effort to provide nutritious meals prepared according to your doctor’s orders. An executive chef trained in the dietary needs of patients strives to prepare foods that are pleasing to the eyes and the taste buds. Meals are served to patients between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m., and are delivered within 45 minutes of ordering. Occasionally, your meal may be delayed if you are scheduled for a special test or treatment. Whenever possible, we will serve your meal after your examination or test. You may select your own menu items from the menu and then dial 4.6777 to place your order with the room service assistant. For the daily menu, please call 4.FOOD. If your doctor prescribes a special diet, you will receive menus tailored to your specific needs. Information regarding your diet can be found on an insert in your menu. Family members or friends may have a guest meal tray delivered to the patient’s room for $10.

Vending machines for snacks and beverages are located in the Emergency Department lobby and on the Garden Level. They are available 24 hours a day.

Cell Phone, Pager and PDA Use

The use of wireless communication devices such as cell phones, two-way pagers and personal digital assistants (PDAs) can interfere with medical equipment and is restricted in all patient care areas. Please restrict your use of these devices to visitor lounges and non-patient care areas.

Your priest, minister or rabbi is always welcome to visit you while you are here.

A lounge is available on each patient floor, allowing family members to accept visitors and stay close without compromising the patient during their recovery.
