HomepageNew York, NY - The healthcare foodservice industry is thriving, growing 4% in 2010 to reach $34 billion, according to "Trends in U.S. Hospital, Nursing Home and Residential Facility Foodservice" by market research publisher Packaged Facts.

According to the report, several trends are powering this growth: room service and individualized patient care; the availability of on-site branded restaurant cuisine; variety and culinary exploration; wellness and nutrition; sustainability and green initiatives; and the need for speed. All trends share a clientele-centric and gastronomically conscientious focus, aimed at fostering greater satisfaction among patrons. Strong healthcare industry growth is also expected to spur market growth, as hospital, nursing home and residential facility foodservice sales increase an estimated 5% in both 2011 and 2012.

"The U.S. hospital and nursing and residential facility footprint is massive, providing enormous foodservice opportunity. So in an age where patient satisfaction surveys and revenue considerations are increasingly powerful influences on hospital decisions, putting the patient first is a top trend with continuing momentum," says Don Montuori, publisher of Packaged Facts.
