Cura raises the bar on coffee service at hospitals including Natchitoches Regional Medical Center, Allegheny Health Network and Texas Health Frisco. “New Orleans Roast coffee has been a mainstay on grocery store shelves across Louisiana, but now guests can get a freshly brewed cup at our new Cane River Cafe,” said the concept’s general manager, Amanda Roberts.
Texas Health Frisco in Frisco, Texas, is another example. There, the cafe features Ascension Coffee, a Dallas-based coffee roaster with a farm-to-table focus. Even when local roasters are not an option, healthcare operations are ditching commodity coffee for destination brands. Allegheny Health Network hospitals partner with Caribou Coffee, known for its signature roasts and sought-after cold brews.
