Many hospitals have already progressed to Room Service.
How does it work? – Hospitals are moving away from dated traylines and operations. Instead, they have progressed to a hotel-style Room Service layout complete with hot and cold prep stations and are able to deliver meals “on demand” providing flexibility in dining times and more importantly, more meal choices to the patient. This has caused a dramatic positive impact on the reputation of food service and patient experience.
Often the overall investment results in a profit center due to the significant savings from decreased food waste.
Some of our customers have saved millions over the years as a result of implementing Room Service.
