Hollywood Private Hospital
Part of Ramsay Health Care


Hollywood Private Hospital actively encourages and supports clinical research as part of its role as a private teaching hospital.

Hollywood has important research facilities onsite for Alzheimer’s disease (The Sir James McCusker Alzheimer’s Disease Research Unit) and orthopaedics (the Perth Orthopaedic Institute). 

Significant medical research is also undertaken in many other areas such as cardiology, urology, mental health, oncology, palliative care and respiratory medicine. This is conducted often in collaboration with the major teaching hospitals and universities.

The focus on research provides an environment in which Hollywoods clinicians can maintain their knowledge and expertise at the forefront of clinical practice.
