Knox Private Hospital provides acute medical care in the home know as Hospital in the Home (HITH).
HITH is the provision of a safe, effective and efficient alternative to in-hospital care for eligible patients.
The outreach program covers patients who would otherwise be in hospital, but now have the resources to be treated in their home.
HITH is a stand-alone unit of Knox Private Hospital that ensures you maintain confidence and independence within a flexible service that meets your needs. 'Home' is defined as the patient’s usual or temporary place of residence i.e. their home or an aged-care facility.
HITH staff work in consultation with you and your carer. Your medical specialist and the nursing staff will assess your suitability to participate in the program.
Your individual care requirements are planned in consultation with you, your doctor and the nursing staff.
You will be visited by Knox Private Hospital nursing staff daily and your treatment will continue as it would in hospital. Your condition will be closely monitored and any changes receive immediate attention.
The HITH staff are on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to provide you with care and advice.
They can be contacted by calling (03) 9210 7393 and asking to speak with the HITH coordinator.
If you are needing to contact HITH after hours please call (03) 9210 7000
Assistance available through the HITH program includes:

HITH is part of your hospital stay and will be billed to your health fund.
