Thefts from West Suffolk Hospital in Bury St Edmunds have included lead roofing, metal piping and a single scone over the last year, according to recently released information.
Over 12 months, the organisation also said that there were thefts reported by patients and members of staff.
A wallet containing £600 and credit cards was taken from a hospital employee at the Hardwick Lane site, while four bicycles, personal medication, shoes and coffee were all reported missing.
Patients reported that amounts of cash –between £80 and £20 – were stolen four times while metal bands, a purse and a clock also disappeared.
A spokesman for West Suffolk Hospital said they would take further action whenever possible.
He added: “We take security at the hospital extremely seriously and do everything we can to prevent our patients, visitors and staff from becoming victims of crime.
“We operate CCTV systems across our buildings, employ a security manager, have installed panic alarms in sensitive areas and work in close partnership with the police. We encourage anyone who notices any suspicious activity around the hospital site to report it and will take further action wherever appropriate.”
