About Us

A Brief History

A small restaurant in Mobile Alabama, Morrison’s Cafeteria, began taking contract foodservice jobs in the 1950s—providing exceptional food, nutrition and dining services to hospitals, businesses and educational institutions in the region.

Over the following decades, Morrison grew, while continuing to focus on improvement of its food and services. In 1990, the business and education divisions were sold, leaving Morrison with approximately 300 healthcare accounts across the U.S.; Morrison Healthcare was born.

Today, Morrison Healthcare is a leading national food and nutrition services company that proudly serves more than 650 hospitals and healthcare systems. Morrison Healthcare together with Crothall Healthcare form Compass One Healthcare – providing food, nutrition and support services in more than 1,850 locations with a combined 90 years of healthcare-only experience.

All About The Food

From the very beginning, it has always been about offering exceptional food and foodservice. And nothing else. In fact, Morrison is the only foodservice company in the nation dedicated exclusively to providing food, nutrition and hospitality services to hospitals and healthcare systems.

Food Philosophy

We have a passion for life’s flavor. Each season begins with menus built around emerging dining trends and the freshest ingredients available. We enhance lives by creating from scratch foods alive with flavor and nutrition, using wholesome ingredients that are harvested in a socially responsible way for the wellbeing of our customers, team members and the environment.

Wellness Philosophy

Wellness, as a means of promoting culture change within our communities, serves as a prominent entity in all that we do. We create great tasting and better-for-you foods that energize the mind, body and spirit, encouraging our customers and the communities in which we serve, to embrace a delicious and healthful style of well-being through balanced nutrition. We define wellness through our food philosophy, and we place equal importance on the sourcing of local and sustainable food ingredients as we do on the nutrients that they provide. However, wellness isn’t just about the food; it is also about changing the culture to effectively promote positive health changes in caregivers, patients and the community.
