Hospital kitchens and dining areas have a lot of demands to fill – providing a variety of menu options, creating meals that are acceptable for people with dietary restrictions, and maintaining the strict hygienic standards required of hospitals are just a few.


When you come to the professionals at Rapids, you can rest assured we will work hard to ensure your kitchen and dining area meet all the necessary qualifications, as well as incorporate your vision for the area.

Room Service Dining

One of the most important aspects of a hospital kitchen is its ability to accommodate room service dining. Since there are many patients who are unable to leave their beds, having an efficient, streamlined procedure in place to transport food trays to and from their rooms is essential.

Rapids will ensure that your kitchen is fully equipped for this service, allowing you to quickly prep the trays, hold the food at the proper serving temperature until they can be taken to the rooms, and move the returned trays through an integrated wash cycle.

Commercial Healthcare Facility and Hospital Kitchen Design Services

Cafeteria concept development – Regardless of whether you are looking to have a traditional dining area or want a more varied approach with a number of different segmented “mini-restaurants,” Rapids can provide guidance and assist you in coming up with a plan you and your patients will love!

Interior design consulting – Your hospital cafeteria doesn’t have to feel like a hospital cafeteria. Create a more relaxing atmosphere by working with our LEED-certified designer. She can also make your kitchen/cafeteria more energy-efficient.

CADD design for your healthcare kitchen and cafeteria – Don’t wait until the final piece of equipment is installed to see what your cafeteria and kitchen will look like – we can use computer-aided design and drafting to show you what it will look like before construction even starts! You can also request a 3D walkthrough!

Project management and coordination – Anyone who works at a hospital knows the vital importance of communication when you are working with others. When you choose Rapids, your project will have a team leader that will coordinate with contractors, vendors, permitting officials, and others to ensure everything goes as smoothly as possible.
