Health System Improves Patient Tray Delivery System

BRUNSWICK, Georgia: Nov. 11, 2010–Patients at Southeast Georgia Health System’s Brunswick Campus now have their meals delivered in more attractive food trays that also keep the food hot longer.

According to Director of Food & Nutrition Services Arthur Tibbetts, the new Heat On Demand® Ultra-T patient food tray delivery system keeps the meals 33 1/3 percent longer and uses 70 percent less electricity than other heating systems. “Each individual base, which holds the patient’s plate, is heated in 12 seconds and keeps the food hot up to one hour and can be safely handled without gloves,” Tibbetts says. “This is just another way we’ve found to further improve our services for patients and their families while they are with us.”
