Community Hospitals - inpatients

Our community hospital inpatient services provide community based, inpatient facilities for people experiencing an exacerbation of an existing condition, or to support recovery following an acute episode of care or decline in health. Admission will be for short term, active rehabilitation.

We provide an alternative pathway to acute hospital admission, enabling the provision of care closer to home. A number of beds will be available for patients with end of life care needs to support palliative care, symptom control, and preferences for end of life care.

We facilitate efficient and effective intermediate care for patients admitted directly from the community setting, and some of those discharged from acute hospitals. We work closely with community based integrated teams, day hospital community assessment services, condition specific specialist services and social services.
