Returning people to health is a cause which should know no compromise. We rise to the challenge of cleanliness and hygiene with just as little compromise. With more than 90 years of experience in the field of washing, cleaning and disinfecting, we are intimately familiar with the needs of our customers in hospitals and clinics. We know how it goes when you want to play it safe. In the kitchen and in the utility room. Rely on our experience, our expertise and our reason when it comes to safety, stable processes and cost sensitivity.
"There are two main reasons why we chose another MEIKO machine for the restaurant."
By selecting a M-iQ machine it became clear that the hospital could save thousands of euros on ventilation technology while significantly reducing energy use and improving indoor air quality. The hospital chose a M-iQ from MEIKO, including the 'M-iQ AirConcept' module.
Catering Manager Shirley Barber reports it is easier to keep clean and operate, heating up quicker and “definitely using less chemicals…we are saving £400 per month.”
By opting for MEIKO's latest series of belt conveyor machines the hospital succeeded in cost savings of €100,000 a year.
In the first year alone the machine reduced operating costs by CHF 63,000 (approx. EUR 40,000): That works out to about 33 percent less energy, water and cleaning chemicals than the dishwashers previously in use. And the trend continues.
Where charity to one's fellow man meets with a professional approach, medical care provided by people for other people exists. And this is the exact aspiration of the Marienhospital in Stuttgart. Over 300 years after Vincent de Paul, to whom the sisters in the Marienhospital and over 1,900 members of staff remain faithful to this day, treatment is still provided according to the maxim of "love is the deed".
Patients at Frimley Park Hospital NHS Foundation Trust, Frimley, Surrey, start the day with a hot, cooked breakfast. Kevan Wallace – Assistant Hotel Services Manager (Catering) and ex-National Chairman of The Hospital Caterers Association – emphasises the importance of serving freshly cooked food on a daily basis. He is proud that Frimley Park Hospital is still serving hot breakfasts while many others have opted for cold.
From the kitchen to the cold store
Despite being on ‘first name’ terms with the other manufacturer’s staff, the hospital team decided to “move away from what we had always had.”
