Hollywood Private Hospital inpatients and boarders can now enjoy hotel-style room service.
The new restaurant-style food service model provides freedom of choice and a new kind of patient experience at no extra charge.
A LA CARTE MENU
Freshly-made meals are prepared to individual dietary requirements and cultural preferences.
The main meal selection includes rack of lamb with red wine jus, fillet steak with peppercorn sauce and salmon drizzled in olive oil and lemon juice.
The extensive menu features locally sourced food and a range of salads, soups, snacks and desserts. There are vegetarian and gluten-free options.

Room service is not available for day patients or Ramsay Clinic Hollywood patients. Day patients have access to several cafeterias throughout the hospital campus and Ramsay Clinic Hollywood patients can enjoy freshly prepared meals from a new-look cafeteria.
THE BENEFITS OF ROOM SERVICE
Research shows that providing flexibility and more choice with room service increases patient satisfaction.1
Other benefits can include:
- Improved clinical outcomes – due to the nutritional benefits with increases in average energy and protein intake.2
- Convenience – patients can order food around fasting protocols, tests and procedures.2
- Reduced waste – Less production waste because only items that are ordered are prepared. Research shows there is also between 12 to 17 per cent less plate waste. 2
