New Cafeteria Hours at Colby Starting September 15

Published July 28, 2014

As People of Providence, we understand the difference that even the smallest change can make in improving patient care, the overall guest experience and affordability. As we continue to identify opportunities in these areas, we’re learning that some of our resources could be allocated differently to enhance affordability while still maintaining excellence in service. Most recently, we found that the cost of operating the Colby café from 7:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. exceeds the revenue from purchases during that hour.  As a result of limited purchases during that time frame, our organization has to cover a majority of the operation expenses. Ultimately, that one additional hour of service falls significantly short of expenses.

To ensure that funding is allocated in ways that better serve those we care for, the Colby Café hours will change. As of September 15, the café will be open from 6:30 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. To ensure services are still available after hours, we will continue to operate our bistro from 6:30 a.m. – 11:00 p.m.

We want to thank all of our caregivers for your ongoing support as we continue to work together to make a difference.
