Patient Meals

WellSpan Evangelical's Bedside Bistro lets you order a freshly prepared meal from your room. It usually takes about 45 minutes to deliver your food and visitors may also order for a fee. Some foods may need to be modified or restricted if your physician has prescribed a therapeutic diet or if you are undergoing certain tests. A complete menu with ordering instructions will be available in your room.

While we do everything we can to make your stay as quiet and restful as possible, recovering at the hospital will never be as quiet as at home. Your rest may be interrupted by nurses checking on you, equipment sounds, or light and sound coming from the hallways. We do our best to keep sound to a minimum while still ensuring you are getting the very best patient care.


Your physician and nurse, case manager, or social worker will discuss discharge instructions with you and give you written instructions for home care. If you do not understand something, please ask to have the instructions repeated or explained further.

Patient Satisfaction

Many, but not all WellSpan Evangelical Community Hospital patients receive a survey following discharge. Your feedback on this survey helps the hospital celebrate areas of excellence and identify opportunities for improvement. Please take a few minutes and complete a survey, if you receive one.
