A more-than-60-year-old kitchen and cafeteria at Dothan’s Southeast Health has a new look, and the new facility is scheduled to open in December.
Birmingham-based Doster Construction Co. built the replacement for the original kitchen and cafeteria on the Southeast Health campus, built in 1956.
“Over the years, the hospital campus grew both around and above the space, which would present numerous challenges as the team set out to completely demo and replace the kitchen and dining facilities,” Doster said in a prepared release.
A temporary mobile kitchen was set up to keep dining services operational throughout construction. Construction on the new facility was finished ahead of schedule.
Dothan architect Mark Pepe designed the new space, which includes the new kitchen, dining and server areas for patients, staff and visitors to Southeast Health.
Doster, founded in 1969, is consistently ranked as one of the nation’s top 400 contractors by Engineering News-Record.
