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 Breast cancer research (BCRC-WA) and Blood disorders (PBI).
Significant medical research is also undertaken in many other areas such as cardiology, urology, mental health, oncology, palliative care and orthopaedics and nuclear 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.

Hollywood Private Hospital Research Ethics Committee (HPH HREC) (EC00266) has changed its name to Ramsay Health Care WA|SA HREC
Over the past 12 months, research activities within Ramsay Health Care have been under review. As a result, we are moving to a national system of Research Ethics and Governance, allowing us to improve operating processes, make research easier to establish in a Ramsay facility, and minimise the duplication of ethics applications among sites for the same projects. This also means facility-based HRECs will be closed.
We can now review applications for proposed research studies at any Ramsay facility across Australia, and can also accept external ethical approvals from NHRMC certified HRECs .These changes will be particularly beneficial for those facilities which do not currently operate an ethics committee.
For amendment requests, adverse event reports or progress reports of existing projects reviewed by the HPH HREC (prior to 1st July 2019): You may need to advise HRECs who have provided reciprocal ethical approval, funding agencies, other regulatory bodies or clinical trial Sponsors of this change of name to the Ramsay WA|SA HREC.
For new research applications: All applications to undertake research at RHC sites will be reviewed for ethical acceptability by one of the newly formed Ramsay Health Care HRECs. Our HRECs will consider applications for research and quality improvement projects to be carried out at any Ramsay Health Care facility
Along with the change in HREC name, there has also been a change in applications & review procedures, and contact details.
