Hospitality Taken to a New Level at New Patient Housing

New ANMC Patient Housing Rendering

"WC&P's goal was to create a welcoming 'home-away-from-home' feeling for the many patients and their families who will be using the facility for years to come." -- Des Hague, Co-Founder of Aegis Enterprises and Partner of WC&P.

Des Hague, Co-Founder of Aegis Enterprises and Partner of WC&P (formerly William Caruso and Associates) is pleased to announce that WC&P completed the food service design for the new patient housing at ANTHC’s (Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium) Alaska Native Medical Center (ANMC) in Anchorage, Alaska.

The new housing facility to be completed later this year will offer 170-plus rooms for patients and families that have to travel to ANMC for care. It will allow easy access to the ANMC hospital via a sky-bridge and provide a home-away-from-home environment for patients and families – more than half of Alaska Native Medical Center’s patients must travel to Anchorage for care and services.

The foodservice equipment budget for the 9,000 sq. ft. kitchen and servery was in the $580K range. Special features to the Servery include a Stone Hearth Pizza station plus Deli, Pasta, Entrée, Grille, Salad Bar and Grab-n-Go stations.

"WC&P is delighted to have been chosen to work on this great project," stated Hague. "It was a pleasing initiative and our task was to ensure the end product complemented not only the natural beauty of the great state but offered a welcoming 'home-away-from-home' feeling to the many patients and their families who will be using the facility for years to come."
