ABSTRACT
The article reports on the decision of the management of Salem Hospital in Salem, Oregon to place a self-serve kiosk in the family birthing center for a trial run in November 2007. According to Randy Calligan, the hospital's hospitality services nutrition operations manager, customers can now place orders from the kiosk and pick them up at a customer-designated time at the employee pick-up station located in the back of the dining facilities, avoiding the busy restaurant and time spent waiting in long lines.
