The Café acquired many cutting-edge features this week as Sodexo became our food services and facilities management company. Sodexo provides a variety of support services to businesses all around the world. At St. Vincent Healthcare, associates, patients and their families can expect many new menu options, display changes, and process improvements.
Our chefs and dietitians have worked together to create many nutritional selections. “We have kept in mind how important it is to provide healthy options for our associates and patients” says Paul Villa, Food Service Director at St. Vincent Healthcare. Mindful is a wellness program that focuses on transparency of ingredients, delicious food, satisfying portions and clarity in message so that making Mindful choices becomes second nature. Brand new menus include: soups made from scratch and new stream table options. Slight modifications have been made to the grill and salad bar to include more whole grains.
The flow of the Café has been improved to keep up with the day to day traffic, as well as making it more accessible for wheelchairs. Digital menu boards will display what is available for breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day of the week. Sodexo has also made the process for room service more efficient by providing software that allows staff to track the status of any patient’s order. GetWellNetwork will also be replacing Skylight and will be up and running within a few short months on TV.
Our dietary team and Sodexo have worked together to provide the best experience for everyone who enters the Café or receives food services. If you haven’t already, go check out the Café!
