Who says hospital food isn’t good? Tri-City Medical Center is known for serving delicious food to patients and visitors alike. You might even know us from our participation in the annual Taste of Carlsbad event that shows off the best of local restaurants.

Our kitchen offers daily gourmet creations by specially-trained cooks emphasizing fresh and healthy ingredients. Meals are served to patients directly in their rooms, subject to dietary restrictions and doctor’s orders.

Gifts and Snacks

Our gift shop, adjacent to the main entrance and lobby, offers an ever-changing assortment of cards, snacks, toys, gifts, and magazines.


NOTE: Latex balloons are NOT allowed in our hospital. Only Mylar balloons may be brought for patients. Our gift shop sells a variety of these.


Fresh flower arrangements are delivered daily, as well. Our warm and friendly volunteers operate the gift shop and all proceed from the gift shop fund scholarships for nursing students.

NOTE: Flowers are NOT allowed in the intensive care unit (ICU).
