Hospital in the Home

Hospital in the Home (HITH) is an inpatient service at the Canberra Hospital. It provides an acute hospital substitution service that allows you to receive care from HITH nurses in your home.

HITH may provide access to other various hospital services, including physiotherapy, occupational therapy, pharmacy, pathology and social work.

You may be eligible for HITH if you:

  • live in Canberra or Queanbeyan and surrounds
  • have access to a telephone
  • are self-caring and/or have a suitable carer
  • have a condition that’s clinically appropriate for home-based care
  • have a safe home environment for the delivery of care

Please ask your doctor or nurse to arrange a meeting with a HITH nurse if you are currently an inpatient.

You can also contact us on 02 5124 2818.

We are located at Building 2, Level 2, Canberra Hospital.
