62 • FOODSERVICE EQUIPMENT & SUPPLIES • AUGUST 2018 facility design p r o j e c t o f t h e m o n t h approaches to rehabilita- tion and applying — or translating — research in real time. Patients can see each other and their activ- ity. This approach helps patients gain more function, achieve better outcomes, and enjoy greater ability and independence. As an extension of AbilityLab's emphasis on ability and healing over disability, the hospital's design serves as inspiration to patients and staff. Upon entering on the ground floor, patients, visitors and staff take elevators to the build- ing's sky lobby on level 10. Level 9 contains mechanical space, and the floors below hold parking spaces. Foodservice primarily resides on the 12th floor and includes a production kitchen that produces patient meals using a hybrid pod and room service methodology. "The 12th floor foodservice location provides amazing views to Lake Michigan because the design team worked hard to ensure unobstructed views," says Connie Dickson, FCSI, design principal, Rippe Associates, Minneapolis. "In most kitchens, we strive for good internal sightlines by locat- ing tall equipment to the exterior walls. In this project, we pulled high equipment inboard and located lower work counters along the exterior. Exterior window walls required the design team to develop special construction details for fabricated work coun- ters with sinks to ensure that the heating system would protect plumbing along exterior walls from cold winter temperatures." A retail serving area features multiple food concept sta- tions and a dining room. The 10th-floor lobby level consists of a small catering pantry , which services the 10th-floor conference spaces, and Argo Tea, a licensed cafe. Argo Tea Inc.'s Mark Cuellar, AIA, VP of design, experience and store development, designed the Argo Tea space. "Patient and retail foodservice provide a means to bring people together, provide respite and enhance healing," says Katie Hartoin, RD, LDN, director, Food and Nutrition Services, Morrison Healthcare, which serves as the center's foodservice provider. The foodservice location on the 12th floor includes high windows allowing in natural light to help boost morale for customers and staff. "Everyone feels this is part of a new era in healthcare dining and production," says Armando Serrano, Morrison Healthcare chef. Production Flow Deliveries arrive on the ground floor. Staff transport the food items to the 12th-floor kitchen in service elevators. Stor- age includes four walk-in coolers and a walk-in freezer for patient foodservice production, plus another walk-in cooler and walk-in freezer for catering and cafe production. In Equipment Key 1.
