The cafeteria, dining hall and kitchen at Riley Hospital for Children at IU Health will undergo extensive renovation from mid-September through mid-May, making room for more people and better eating and seating options.

The main cafeteria and dining hall will close for construction from Sept. 16 to May 11 as part of the Riley maternity tower construction project.

Back-of-house kitchen renovation will occur in two phases so that patient food preparation, room service and catering can continue uninterrupted. Team members, visitors and other guests are encouraged to use alternate dining options during the construction period.

The renovation will be the cafeteria's first overhaul since it opened in 1985. On any given weekday, the facility serves about 450 people.
