Riley Hospital's only dinner option, McDonald's

After 2 p.m., McDonald's is the only choice for food at Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health.

Sept. 12—People who get hungry after 2 p.m. at Riley Hospital for Children at Indiana University Health had best like McDonald’s.

The fast food burger joint will be the only place to purchase an evening meal in the state’s largest children’s hospital until a new café opens in the Simon Family Tower some time in early 2014, hospital officials say.

A few weeks ago Riley officials decided to close the hospital cafeteria each day at 2 p.m. and not re-open for dinner. Hubbard and Cravens, which sells sandwiches and salads, closes at 6 p.m. That leaves McDonald’s, which is open 24/7, as the only option for an evening meal, aside from room service.
