Mater is the first hospital in Australia to offer hotel-like Room Service to patients.
The Room Service menu is comprehensive and offers patients delicious meal options that cater to every taste, and are clinically suitable to meet individual dietary requirements. Meals are freshly prepared, ordered at your convenience (between 6.30 am and 7 pm) and delivered directly to your room within 45 minutes.
Mater has partnered with celebrity chef, Luke Mangan, to serve a range of specially-tailored, restaurant-style meals to bring an extra touch of comfort to patients.
Mater Nutrition and Food Services Director Sally McCray said providing the option of restaurant-style meals that patients can order at a time of their choosing had led to improved nutritional intake and reduced food wastage in the hospital.
“We’ve been changing the notion of hospital food at Mater for nearly a decade now, from providing room service to offering creative and contemporary dishes with high nutritional value,” she said.
Mater patients are getting a taste of bush tucker with a new bedside menu featuring Australian native ingredients that are high in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals to help build immunity and protect against disease.
The dishes, created by Mater Executive Chef Aman Marwah and celebrity chef Luke Mangan, include popular native ingredients such as warrigal greens, bush tomatoes, finger limes, Davidson plums, pepper berry, wattle seed, lemon myrtle and hibiscus flowers.
If you are on a diet that has special requirements, including preparation for a procedure, your menu choices may be modified or restricted. To assist you in making a healthier meal choice, there are symbols throughout the menu to indicate:
