Food Services to See Enhanced Menus, Services, Efficiency

Food service is changing in the months ahead: room service for most hospital patients, new cafeteria signage, renovation projects, and menus featuring more fruits and vegetables, fewer sugar-sweetened beverages, and more locally and sustainably grown foods. It’s all part of implementing the new CHI National Food Services Program across KentuckyOne.  

KentuckyOne will work with Catholic Health Initiatives to implement the comprehensive program. 

No significant changes in staffing levels are expected. Most KentuckyOne food service managers, staff and dietitians will be offered employment with Sodexo subject to all applicable pre-hire screening requirements.  

Most Louisville market food service employees of Aramark are expected to transition to Sodexo Oct. 18. Central and eastern Kentucky market and Flaget Memorial Hospital food service employees will transition to Sodexo about Jan. 1, 2014. Food service directors will be employed through the CHI National Food Services Program. For now, Morrison will continue to provide food service for ULH.

CHI Introduces Food Services Program
For Information
As part the Clinical and Operational Excellence initiative and to further its mission of building healthier communities, CHI has partnered with Sodexo to design a National Food Services Program. This internal program combines CHI’s resources with Sodexo’s tools to create a standardized system with the resources necessary to reduce operational variation and leverage CHI's scale. Sodexo was chosen to help launch this program because it shares the goal of enhancing the lives of CHI's patients, visitors and employees. 

CHI markets will have the opportunity to work with the National Food Services Program project team to conduct individual facility assessments and determine the best implementation approach for each facility. The program's rollout will occur in phases, with the first market beginning startup activities this month. Other markets will be given priority for implementation based on need, financial opportunity and existing contracts.
