Taste AND nutrition matter when it comes to creating a successful vending program at your Healthcare Facility.
Vending Programs Tailored To The Special Needs of Hospitals, Assisted Living and Rehab Facilities.
Vending machines are a very public-facing food service in most healthcare facilities, and a great way to reinforce the facility's commitment to serving healthy and nutritious foods and beverages. Stocking healthier options in vending machines ensures employees and visitors looking to snack throughout the day will find that the healthy choice is the easiest choice.

And whether that break translates into coffee, a cold drink or a snack, Global Vending Service can provide everything needed to truly refresh your employees. Our vending machines focus on patient and staff well-being to provide them with easy and convenient access to a wide range of healthy products.

Our Machines Meet the 2014 ADA Vending Requirements
To make vending machines accessible for disabled people who use wheelchairs, the U.S. Department of Justice revised some regulations to the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).Global Vending complies with the U.S. Department of Justice's (DOJ) regulations by offering vending machines that are either ADA-compliant or ADA-ready.
The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requires all usability components of the vending machine to be between 15" and 48" up from the floor which designates machines as ADA-compliant. All of the usability components including the monetary, selection, and delivery areas on our ADA-compliant vending machines are positioned to accommodate wheelchair accessibility.
