As part of its drive to create a welcoming experience, Spire Manchester Hospital in Didsbury has awarded its vending refreshments contract to Broderick’s Group.
Broderick’s has installed over 30 machines in the private hospital, including hot drinks, snacks and water machines in both public and staff areas.
The vending operator has also provided a solution for the hospital’s bistro.
Giuseppe Altieri, Spire Manchester Hospital’s catering manager, said: “There’s a real misconception about hospital food and refreshments, and at Spire Manchester we’re on a mission to change that.
‘’When people are in hospital, as a patient, visitor, or member of staff, it’s our job to help recharge and refresh them – whether that’s in the café, or by providing options to pick up a drink or snack on the move.”
Spire was attracted by the fact that Broderick’s offers the option of real milk in its machines.
The hospital included a luxurious fresh brew tea and bean-to-cup vending machine for coffee-shop-worthy coffees and a Media Vend machine, which features video screens that Spire can use to communicate with users.
