An RX for Convenience
Introducing the NEW Ambulatory Pharmacy at Riverview Medical Center
We want to make your transition back home seamless and convenient. With our NEW ambulatory pharmacy, you can fill your prescription and ask questions about your medication before you leave the hospital.
Our ambulatory pharmacy can fill prescriptions during your hospital visit. A pharmacy liaison will visit to fill your prescription as well as provide education about the medication and, based upon timing, deliver it to your bedside or make it available for pick-up at our pharmacy upon discharge.
This service is available from 7:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, and is located on the first floor next to the Chapel in the Marshall Pavilion. Most prescription plans are accepted and we accept cash, check, or debit/credit.
To reach our pharmacy liaison call extension 5345, for questions or to call the pharmacy directly call 732-450-2602.

Patient Food Service
While meal service times can vary from unit to unit, the general hours of meal service are:
- Breakfast: 7:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m.
- Lunch: 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Our Food and Nutrition Services team members play an important role in your recovery and continued good health by making sure the nutritional requirements from your physician are being met.
Each morning, you will receive a menu on your meal tray that allows you to choose what food you would like to eat for the following day's breakfast, lunch, and dinner. A nutrition technician will pick up your menu each day.
There are times when substitutions must be made if an item selected becomes unavailable during the course of the day. If you are on a special diet, food will be prepared to your doctor's orders. The nutrition technician or registered dietician will explain any restrictions to you.
Late trays are provided for patients whose diagnostic tests occur during scheduled mealtimes. In addition, kosher meals are offered if you require them for dietary or religious reasons.
Please do not accept food from home unless you have first checked with your physician or the Food and Nutrition Services team.

The room that you are in allows us to provide the best care possible to fit your medical needs. If there is a change in your condition that requires a different type of care, we may need to move you to another room. Please speak with your nurse if you have any concerns or questions about possible room relocations.
We know that if given a choice, most patients would prefer a private room. While there are a limited number of private rooms at Riverview Medical Center, most of the rooms are semi-private or shared rooms.
At any time during your stay with us, you may request a private room. We will make every effort to accommodate that request, but please note that private rooms cost more than semi-private rooms and insurance companies may not pay the difference.
Your room and bathroom will be cleaned and trash emptied on a daily basis. We also provide Turndown Service as time permits after 3:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. If you need additional cleaning service, contact our Environmental Services staff or alert your nurse.
