NYU Langone Medical Center
When Hurricane Sandy struck the northeast in October 2012, NYU Langone Medical Center became one of the many victims of the storm.
With no open space, due to constraints in its urban location, the best option was to place an interim containerized kitchen on the roof of a parking garage.
With the rising storm surge and failing back-up generator, the hospital made an important decision and successfully evacuated 322 patients. Once immediate danger was over and the patients were cared for elsewhere, the focus shifted to re-opening the damaged hospital and medical center. After contacting Kitchens To Go in early November for an interim foodservice solution, the first unit arrived and was in place 30 days later.
