Epicure Digital, a leader in digital menu boards, presents the Epicure Digital Menu System with special emphasis on nutritional menu labeling at the Association for Healthcare Foodservice (AHF) Annual Conference, Arizona Biltmore, Phoenix, AZ, 5-9 June, 2011, Booth #316.

Hospitals nationwide are introducing digital menu boards with nutritional menu labeling in their cafeterias. Among these are University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) Medical Center, Phoenix Children Hospital, University Hospitals in Cleveland, Central DuPage Hospital in Chicago, Hendricks Regional Health in Indiana and Sanford Health in Sioux Falls, all of which are using the Epicure Digital Menu System.

UCSF Medical Center’s Moffitt Café was recently featured as the cover story of Food Management, May 2011 and the cover story of the Healthcare Supplement to Food Service Equipment Report, Spring 2011.

According to Dan Hendroid, Director of Nutrition and Food Services at UCSF Medical Center "The Epicure Digital Menu System allows us to cycle parts of the menu as needed...some parts of our menu cycle every 28 days, and others 14 or seven days. The technology lets us handle all the cycles on the same menu board at the same time. The System is a time-saver, and flexible in that it lets us change menus or prices as needed,"
