Food and Services
Good food not only assists in the recovery process, it also lifts people's spirits and helps their mental and emotional wellbeing. In February, we launched an exciting new menu designed to boost patient nutrition and their overall hospital experience.
While we focus on traditional, home-style meals, we’re challenging the negative perception of ‘hospital food’ by offering a selection of gourmet dishes and superfoods typically found on menus in cafes and restaurants. The menu features a balance of healthful items, like chia pudding and Buddha Bowls, as well as more comforting classics, such as Atlantic salmon farfalle and chicken and leek pot pie.
It has been carefully created to offer meals that are nutrient-dense, satisfying and flavoursome – even for patients with dietary requirements. It has already been successfully introduced to 12 Healthscope Hospitals, as a standard approach across the network, with very positive feedback to date.
Mums in the Maternity Ward can look forward to receiving a congratulations platter to enjoy for morning or afternoon tea on the second day of their stay (NB if admitted over the weekend, patients can expect the platter to arrive on the Monday). Our platter features an array of sweet treats, for example, macarons, chocolate-dipped strawberries, and profiteroles.
Breastfeeding is a hungry business! In the evenings after dinner, we put out a range of snacks and refreshments in the kitchenette to sustain our hard-working mums through to breakfast time.
As a little treat for mums, we provide a complimentary pack of Bondi Wash toiletries in all our postnatal rooms. Bondi Wash is a local luxury brand of natural body, beauty and home products using high-quality Australian botanicals. The pack contains a collection of natural products for the hair and body to help you stay fresh and fragrant during your stay.
