We are transforming the meal-time experience for our Maternity patients, and from August 6th, 2019, will offer full Room Service for all meals. Patients will no longer receive their meals at a set time each day, nor will they need to select their meals a day in advance.
Instead, our patients will receive fresh, cooked to order meals delivered in under 45 minutes. They will also have the option to pre-order a meal and have it delivered at a specified time.
The new room service will be available to all patients from 7am to 7pm daily. Meals can be ordered by phoning the Room Service Assistants in the Call Centre. Call centre staff are trained to guide those with special food needs through menu choices, so that good nutrition remains paramount.
Partner meals may also be ordered through Room Service. The cost of a visitor meal is $22 per tray/ meal, and will be added to your hospital account.
