Inpatient Menu

The Food and Nutrition Services group at University of Colorado Hospital prepares fresh, delicious dishes for all our patients. We use healthy, fresh ingredients.

We believe good food helps heal you.

We use fresh Colorado chicken, not frozen. Our Mac-N-Cheese is made from scratch, just like Mom’s. All our soups are homemade, flavorful and satisfying. Our mashed potatoes don’t come from a box. They’re real, just like our chefs.

We think that patients are happier when they can eat tastier, healthier food.

Order “Room Service” from our new inpatient menu and see if you agree.
