Fountain Court Café

Café guidelines

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Fountain Court Café has limited dining available and Community Hospital visitor restrictions are in place. Visitors may also take their food to the room of the patient they are visiting.

The Fountain Court Café is more than a cafeteria — it's a well-known community gathering spot. When COVID-19 restrictions aren’t in place, sip coffee near the koi pond, grab a bite to eat, or chat with a friend or loved one over dessert. You'll appreciate the café's relaxing environment, friendly staff, and extensive menu designed by our Nutrition Services team.
