New hospital dining hall to offer wood-fired pizza, take-home meals
The new space has a more open concept with fresh, made-to-order options.
Mercy Hospital Springfield in Springfield, Mo., opened its new dining hall with a ribbon-cutting ceremony in early July, according to OzarksFirst.com.
The new dining concept was designed with employees in mind. Foodservice directors and designers worked to listen to the employees and used their suggestions in the final design, which includes a more open concept and a broad, bright bank of windows.
“I think that it just sets the mood,” said Amy Partain, director of nutrition and food service at Mercy. “I think that it will be a place that people go to recharge, a place of rest. I think that it’s going to be really appealing and a place people will go whether they’re a guest, or they’re a co-worker just to get away.”
Dining options in the new hall include wood-fired pizza, baked goods and take-home meals.
