Banner Del E. Webb staff funds cafeteria renovation, celebrate completion
SUN CITY WEST, Ariz. (Sept. 17, 2013) – Banner Del E. Webb Medical Center is continuing to provide the community with more than just an award winning facility for medical treatments and procedures: it’s the cafeteria attracting community diners. Area residents are welcome to enjoy culinary creations for breakfast, lunch or dinner at the newly remodeled cafeteria, located on the main level of the nonprofit hospital at 14502 Meeker Blvd. in Sun City West.
Joshua Fels, Culinary and Nutrition Services director for the medical center, said 95 percent of the food served is made in-house from scratch every day. To keep up with the high food standard, the cafeteria recently underwent an extensive remodel. Fels said new flooring, pendant lighting, music and booths help transform the hospital cafeteria into a community dining destination, which is now open to visitors, staff and the public looking for a meal with exceptional quality and service at a reasonable price.
Staff celebrated the grand opening of their renovated cafeteria with a ribbon cutting on Sept. 5. The project was partially funded through Better Together, an annual employee giving campaign where 100 percent of the contributions made will go to programs supported through Banner Health Foundation and Sun Health Foundation.
“It’s important that we give back to the facility that we work at. If we do that, we can make a difference,“ said Joanna Karas, Banner Del E. Webb Medical Center’s Better Together chair. “It makes you feel good to know that this is something you contributed to as an invested, engaged employee.”
The 2012 Better Together Campaign at Banner Del E. Webb Medical Center raised $65,333.41, providing funds to renovate the cafeteria with new tables, chairs, booths, lighting and even WIFI. Next, Karas said they’re hoping to add new furniture and shade sails to the patio space at the cafeteria with funds from the 2013 Better Together Campaign, which kicked off on Sept. 5.
The cafeteria is now open daily, and the public is encouraged to join Banner Del E. Webb for breakfast, lunch and dinner:
- Breakfast available from 6:30 to 10 a.m.
- Lunch served from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
