St John of God Subiaco Hospital’s room service menu will soon be available to all patients hospital-wide

All St John of God Subiaco Hospital patients will soon be able to conveniently order the food they want, when they want it, thanks to the expansion of the hospital’s a la carte room service model. 

14 Oct 2022

Traditionally only enjoyed by the hospital’s maternity patients, the service will be available to all patients and boarders hospital-wide from Tuesday 18 October. 

St John of God Subiaco Hospital CEO Tina Chinery said that this exciting service expansion is part of the hospital’s commitment to continually enhancing the patient experience. 

“In 2019, we were pleased to become one of the first private hospitals in Perth to offer a room service menu. Due to the positive feedback received from maternity patients and their partners, the decision was made to make the service available to all of our patients,” she said.

“To enable this to occur, we invested in a significant, 10 month upgrade of our hospital’s existing kitchen, and are currently in the process of constructing new service lifts.

“We are incredibly proud of the room service menu, which incorporates delicious and nutritious meal selections for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and has been designed by highly experienced dietitians and chefs.”

“Importantly, the hotel-style menu also accommodates dietary and religious requirements to ensure that the individual health and cultural needs of our patients are met.”

Patients can make meal selections via a simple phone call from the comfort of their room, and with the assistance of a caregiver if required. 

Freshly made meals are delivered to the patient within 45 minutes of the order being received by the kitchen. 

The service is aimed at supporting an improved patient experience for St John of God Subiaco Hospital inpatients, ahead of the planned redevelopment at the hospital, which subject to approval, will be the largest transformation in the hospital’s 123 year history and will ensure the health care needs of the community are met into the future.
