A catering prep area features two induction units. A nearby bakery prep area includes a baker's table, 20-quart mixer, a bun pan rack and ingredient bins. "Another change in the kitchen required moving a convection oven close to the room service area and close to the baker's station," Reitano says. The kitchen's reorientation better supports the room service program available from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. Two combi ovens and two 12-gal- lon tilt kettles support room service in addition to a new steam table, pass- thru refrigerator, hot water dispensers, microwave oven, a rapid-speed oven, a steamer, pasta cooker, 36-inch griddle top range and a 24-inch four-burner range. Upgraded software contributes to a more efficient room service program. Also, new uniforms give team members a more professional appearance. Sustainable practices for the new operation include energy-saving equip- ment and practices that meet LEED certification, though the design is not LEED certified. The dishwashing area may be upgraded in the future. After a few months in operation, Biddle says she is "impressed with how the staff handled the transition so beautifully. We're also so pleased with customer response. This is an example of how great teamwork pays off." FE&S l Ownership: Community Hospital Anderson, Anderson, Ind.
