About our hospital in the home service
We know that for some patients, it is more comfortable and convenient to be cared for in the home. That’s why Cabrini offers an innovative model of care called Hospital in the Home Unit (HHU) providing hospital level treatment for patients in their own familiar surroundings, so they do not need to travel.
For patients who qualify, it can provide an alternative to being admitted to hospital, or an opportunity to return home earlier than would otherwise be possible.
Even though your care and treatment will be delivered at home, the unit is still considered a clinical ward of Cabrini Health. That means our unit not only has its own dedicated team of medical and nursing staff, but patients can still access our specialist support services.
This type of care is not suitable for every patient. To be eligible, you must be assessed by one of our doctors and meet the admission criteria.
