Hospital in the Home
Hospital in the Home is a free service providing acute health care to eligible patients living at home, hostels or other supported accommodation within a 15km radius of Stawell Regional Health.
The service includes a combination of hospital and home-based nursing and medical care, and in many instances, can replace the need for patient hospitalisation altogether. Our highly qualified nurses visit patients at home to provide the appropriate health care, and arranges for the doctor to visit if and when required.
Referrals to the Hospital in the Home program are generally made by the patient’s doctor, and patients must meet some basic eligibility criteria, such as having carer support and an environment which is suitable to receive health care services.
