Hospital in the Home

Bass Coast Health provides a Hospital in the Home (HitH) service which is the provision of acute care to public hospital patients in the comfort of the individual’s own home or other suitable environment.

Patients remain under the care of the Wonthaggi Medical Group and care is provided by Bass Coast Health's experienced registered nurses in the individual’s home. Additional home support can also be arranged if this is required.

This allows you to go home as early as possible whilst still being cared for by experienced health care professionals. These professionals are on-call and can be contacted 24 hours a day.

No cost is incurred to you or your family as you are considered an ‘inpatient’ of the hospital whilst on the program and you are eligible for access to the services available at Bass Coast Health.
