Erlanger Logo


The Erlanger Western Carolina Hospital culinary team creates nourishing and well-balanced menus for patients, hospital staff, and visitors. Our cafeteria features healthy and delicious fare with daily specials, scheduled mealtime buffets, a healthy options grill, and salad bar.

Snacks and drinks are available between scheduled cafeteria hours. The hot bar posts nutritional information on each dish to assist dining guests with making dietary decisions for medical conditions.

A room service style menu, Catering To You, is available for patients receiving a regular or heart-healthy diet.

For the convenience of staff and guests, vending machines are available in the hallway towards the cafeteria and the Emergency Department lobby. We recommend patients ask a nurse prior to eating or drinking vending machine products.
