Chef Chris Hansen

Bethany Life recently announced that after eight years, Chef Chris Hansen will be departing on a new adventure as the executive chef at Mary Greeley Medical Center.

During his time at Bethany Life, the Food and Nutrition Services Department accomplished many things. Under Hansen’s direction, staff was trained to prepare food with flair, giving attention to texture, presentation and taste while keeping nutrition the first priority. Bethany Life became quickly known for “great food.”

Resident choice was also expanded with a variety of food selections and an “Always Available” menu. In addition, Chef Chris was instrumental in Tom & Stevie’s Bistro and perfecting the menu and service.

Chef Chris has been a tremendous leader and great friend of Bethany Life and he is wished all the best at MGMC, where he will be an outstanding asset.

The search is underway for a new chef who will continue to provide the excellent food service we have all come to know at Bethany Life.
