On Tuesday April 27, 2021, two leading FCSI The Americas design consultants, plus David Reeves, system director, Lee Health and Rick Caron, executive vice president & chief innovation officer of Welbilt, Inc., met for a virtual FCSI roundtable to discuss innovation in healthcare dining.
The ‘Future-tech’ series roundtable also addressed how evolved thinking, processes and technology are helping hospital and senior care living foodservice operators to improve flow and create efficiencies in kitchens and serving areas. Plus, how innovation is able to create a safer, more hygienic foodservice environment in healthcare dining during the Covid-19 pandemic.
