This article looks at the action taken by Luther Crest, a long-term care facility in Allentown, Pennsylvania, to survive an unplanned renovation. Christine Pacitti, general manager at this Cura Hospitality account, says it was really for the employees' safety that they evacuated immediately. Pacitti's staff pitched in by bringing in toasters and crock Pots from their homes. They set up a makeshift kitchen in a formal dining room, which previously was used for private parties. Pancitti says they have a tentative reopening date at the end of July.
