DE – Bad Mergentheim

The Diabetes-Klinik (Diabetes Clinic), located in the heart of the spa town Bad Mergentheim, is the leading facility for the treatment of diabetes mellitus in Germany thanks to decades of experience.

The modernisation of the specialist clinic began in mid-2016. In the first construction phase, the conversion of the kitchen and the guest area was scheduled with an investment volume of approx. four million euros. Economic aspects and special features of communal catering had to be taken into account for the planning and technical equipment.

Managing Director Thomas Böer therefore placed his complete trust in regional competence: “We also wanted to take the high quality standards of our clinic into account for the new kitchen. With PALUX we have the kitchen technology experts literally on our doorstep. The professional consultation and the technical possibilities of the PALUX products enabled us to set up a modern kitchen. And as a result, we were also able to optimize the meal concept together with our food service supplier.”

In the clinic's own restaurant PRiMA approximately 200 lunches are prepared daily according to the principle of “eating healthy with pleasure”. The individual menus of the patients are a special challenge for Katharina Paintner (Head of Nutrition and Supply Management) and her team: “The exact weighing and the individual preparation of the food are extremely important and a responsible task. Each meal must be calculated based on daily calories and carbohydrate levels. In addition, any food intolerances and allergies must also be taken into account. Therefore, we literally must be able to rely on our kitchen technology blindly. The PALUX devices support us excellently with their simple and intuitive operation!”

With the thermal appliances from the PALUX Topline series and the two combi steamers PALUX Touch 'n' Steam Comfort 1021 QL, the kitchen team can fully dedicate itself to the health requirements of the respective patient. Thanks to perfect organisation there are no waiting times for the guests – within a very short time the food can be eaten in the attractively designed restaurant area.
