Banner Thunderbird Medical Center, a nonprofit hospital, is a 409 bed, acute care hospital offering a array of services. The healthcare professionals at Banner Thunderbird Medical Center in Glendale, Arizona have served the Northwest Valley for more than 25 years. Banner Thunderbird contacted Kitchens To Go in anticipation of a major renovation project that involved construction of a new 220 bed patient tower, a new main entrance, emergency department, cafeteria and fully remodeled kitchen. The challenge was to provide uninterrupted food service patients, visitors and staff during the renovation and construction.
KTG provided an innovative nine modular complex to include two cooking modules with extensive cook lines, a preparation module, two serving modules, a dish-washing module, three cart storage modules and a employee lock/restroom area. Additionally, two walk-in coolers and three walk-in freezers are attached to the complex. This modular complex allows continuous foodservice to the Medical Center during the one year renovation.
