Lava Gel Technologies today announced h°eats® pads-for-healthcare, a new way to ensure acute care hospitals have the tools to address the potential unprecedented demand for safe, hot food services as a result of the global health pandemic caused by the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

H°eats pads-for-healthcare allows hospital food services the ability to keep tray-lines operational when a steamtable becomes inoperative or if the need for mobile, flexible and agile food services is required. H°eats pads-for-healthcare is a water-activated, flame-free, self-heating pad that is placed between two food pans. It provides safe, reliable, flame free heat for up to two hours and offers a new way for health care foodservice departments to continue patient feeding operations when steamtable equipment becomes in-operable or the demands on the food services extends beyond the limitations of the existing infrastructure. H°eats pads-for-healthcare’s low cost and 30 second activation, are the perfect choice for a foodservice department’s meal service contingency plan. H°eats pads-for-healthcare also allows foodservice departments the ability to scale up their feeding operations immediately, to meet the demands of increasing patient census during emergency situations. H°eats pads-for-healthcare integrates seamlessly with existing equipment and supplies and does not require accessories or special equipment to purchase.

“All healthcare foodservice departments should have a rapidly deployable, inexpensive contingency plan that can be implemented, on demand, in times of need that will ensure the delivery of hot, nourishing meals to their patients. With today’s unpredictable demands on a hospital’s foodservice department, a safe, simple and reliable contingency plan to scale up or ensure continued meal deliveries, regardless of a lack of additional equipment capacity or un-expected equipment failures, is a must,” says Anthony Russo, Director of Business Development at Lava Gel Technologies, LLC.

Jimmy Frischling, Managing Partner at Branded Hospitality Group LLC, added, “The issue facing Acute Care Hospitals represents an immediate and material threat to our healthcare system and while there are many pressing issues hospitals will need to address as a result of the expected spike in demand for health services, we feel LGT can specifically be an ally to the healthcare industry as it pertains to its Food Services that are also going to be under tremendous pressure.”
