We welcome visitors to dine in our cafeteria. The cafeteria is located on the first floor of the hospital. It is open seven days a week, from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. We accept cash, credit cards, and STHS guest cards. A recording of our daily menu is available by calling the menu line at ext. 4447. Guest cards offer a 10 percent discount on meals purchased in the cafeteria. The cards can be purchased at the registers in the cafeteria during hours of operation.

Visitors who choose to dine in room with a patient may purchase a Room Service Dining Guest Tray by calling ext. 4300. 
Guest Trays are ordered from the patient menu and require cash or credit card payment at the time of delivery ($5 breakfast; $8 lunch/dinner; $1 for soda or other beverages not on the menu).

Room Service Dining

St. Tammany Health System is proud to provide Room Service Dining for our patients and guests.
Room Service Dining is offered between 6:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.  All patients are provided with a menu according to their physician ordered diet. All meals are prepared to order, with a delivery goal of 45 minutes or less.  Patients may place their meal orders by calling extension 4300.  If a patient needs assistance to order a meal, our Room Service Specialists can take meal orders at the patient’s bedside.  Family members can place advanced meal orders for patients with a requested meal delivery time, or they can order for the patient from outside the hospital by calling 985.898.4300. 

Visitors may dine in our cafeteria or purchase a Room Service Dining Guest Tray from the patient menu.  
Patients should utilize Room Service Dining and not eat in the cafeteria.

Our Food and Nutrition Services Department is dedicated to providing an exceptional food service experience for our patients and visitors.  If you have concerns about our service, please call our Room Service Dining Supervisor at extension 3675.
