Kitchen Upgrade

When Torrance Memorial Medical Center’s public cafeteria was moved to a new patient tower on campus, they had the space needed to separate public and inpatient food service functions. The result is an expansive 10,500-sq.ft. kitchen with new, updated equipment, the infrastructure needed to support a unique patient dining experience. Located in the central tower, this older building posed challenges for this kitchen upgrade. The c|a team effectively addressed existing conditions, older construction standards, significant air distribution issues, the weight of the new equipment and patient floors above and below. The inpatient focused kitchen now allows hospital staff to efficiently deliver individualized meal options that enhance TMMC’s personalized healthcare model.
