Making Foodservice in Healthcare Easier With Cambro

Foodservice in healthcare is very important since the food that is prepared and served helps to heal, comfort, and nourish.

In-room delivery and transport can be a large undertaking for assisted living homes, hospitals and rehab centers. Having the correct tools to make sure food is served at the correct temperatures with the least amount of disturbance can make a huge difference in your patient’s health and your facility’s satisfaction scores.

How do you keep the food hot as it comes out of the oven in different batches? A heat system will store the food on its individual plates while the food is being prepared and put on trays. Plate heaters are also helpful in keeping foods hot longer and are available on wheels for easy mobility in the kitchen.

Transporting

Having equipment that moves smoothly while also keeping temperatures and preventing spills is as important and the quality of the food being transported.

Providing plenty of time to easily deliver cold food items to multiple patients. 

Making sure patients aren’t disturbed by food delivery is easily accomplished by selecting carts designed to be as quiet as possible.

Serving
