Sodexho Healthcare has signed a five-year deal worth £26m in total turnover with Hillingdon Hospital NHS Trust.
Under the terms of the £5.2m annual turnover contract, Sodexho will introduce a plated steam option for patient feeding in the new year as well as running staff and public restaurants at Hillingdon and Mount Vernon hospitals.
The company will also provide the Trust, which has 2,500 staff and 440 beds, with cleaning and other domestic services.
Sue Batty, head of estates and facilities at the Hillingdon Hospital NHS Trust, said: "I am delighted with the innovative approach bought with the proposal, and look forward to building a strong partnership."
Last month Sodexho announced it had won its first Private Finance Initiative contract in Ireland as part of a €300m (£211m) project.
The company has been awarded preferred bidder status as part of a consortium that will construct and run four secondary schools in the Republic.
Sodexho will provide facilities management services at each site including caretaking, cleaning and grounds management.
