Dear Forest Hills Family and Friends,
Forest Hills is continuing to invest in our community and is always working hard to enhance the quality of life for our residents. With that, please take note of the following...
IMPORTANT RENOVATION UPDATE
Starting in 2012, we embarked on a comprehensive plan for major upgrades in our community's common areas: the new entrance way, beautiful main lobby, library, gift shop, complete makeover of our concierge area, Assisted Living and Healthcare Center Dining Rooms are all evidence of these efforts. The next phase is a renovation of our main kitchen, located behind the Assisted Living Dining Room.
The kitchen will receive new equipment, flooring, light fixtures, painting, and other major improvements that will enhance our dining service and your dining experience.
In order to accomplish this work, all kitchen operations will move to a mobile kitchen, which will be located adjacent to our garden. We anticipate arrival of the mobile unit later this month or in early October. The mobile kitchen is replete with state of the art equipment and is specifically designed for alternative meal preparation during major renovations.
The plans for the renovation of our main kitchen, including the use of the mobile kitchen, were reviewed and approved by the District of Columbia Department of Health, Health Regulation Administration, Health Care Facilities Division.
We are optimistic that the work will take approximately twelve weeks to complete. You will be kept apprised of progress and when our new kitchen is fully operational again.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me or Carra Thomas, General Manager Dining Services at 202-966-7623 ext. 3300 or
We hope you share our excitement about this heroic, though long-overdue, project. Please know that we apologize for any inconvenience you may experience during the renovation, but I am confident you will be very pleased with the results.
As always, it is my privilege to serve you and family members here at Forest Hills. Please do not hesitate to let me know whenever I can be of assistance to you.
