The Food Services department – including the kitchen and cafeteria – at UM Shore Medical Center at Chestertown will be undergoing construction beginning the first week of October.
During the project, which is expected to be completed in six weeks, a kitchen trailer will be onsite for the preparation of hot and cold foods for patients, visitors, team members and volunteers of the Medical Center. The cafeteria will remain open for breakfast and lunch, however, there will be a limited menu and all meals will be served on disposable dishes.
There will be a designated area within the hospital used for the staging of patient meals. Keith Gould, regional director of Food Services, UM Shore Regional Health, will be working with team members at UM Shore Medical Center at Chestertown over the next several weeks to provide education about meal preparation, staging and delivery during this process to ensure that there will be no disruption of meal service to patients and those frequenting the cafeteria.
Thank you in advance for your patience as we work to make these improvements!
