At St Vincent’s Private Hospital, we recognise the value of good nutrition in aiding recovery
from surgery or illness. We encourage our patients to eat well by providing good quality food.
Our menu has been compiled and nutritionally analysed with guidance from our Dietetics
Department, and is in line with the Department of Health & Children’s Guidelines for Food
& Nutritional Care in Hospitals.
Our menu offers suitable options for those requiring Healthy Eating, Low Residue, Renal/
Diabetic, High Protein/High Calorie, Modified Consistency, Gluten-Free and Light Diets.

Chaplaincy and Pastoral Care Services
Having someone to support you, encourage you or even just to listen, can help the healing process. Our Chaplaincy Team provides spiritual and emotional support to patients, to their families and to staff, as required. You will find our Pastoral Care Department on the ground floor, beside Reception.
Additionally, visits from chaplains and ministers of all denominations can be arranged on request.
Mass is celebrated at 11.00 daily by a Roman Catholic priest in the Oratory on Level 1, directly over the Reception. The Oratory, which is always open, and where all are welcome, provides a quiet space for prayer and reflection.
