Indianapolis hospital kitchen upgrades to improve food safety, quality

November 29, 2016

IU Health Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis has modernized its kitchen, replacing equipment that has been here for around thirty years, according to an article on the WTHR website.

“We hope to make items that are more home-like tasting, and we want to tailor the taste to our local customers instead of what we just buy frozen,” said Jeff Ketcham, systems manager for the hospital’s nutrition services.

There are new high tech ovens that are a combination of steam and convection technology that keep the food moist instead of drying it out.
