ABSTRACT
This article deals with the new VIP floor opened by New York-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center in New York City in July 2009. According to Laura Robinson, site administrator for food and nutrition, menus at the new floor can rival those at any five-star restaurants in the city. Its kitchen staff is composed of two executive chefs, two sous chefs, five cooks and nine servers. Particular focus is given to the schedule of foodservice schedules at the VIP floor. Patients who require intensive care unit care are not accepted at the new floor.
