 What we do

Acute Post-Acute Care (APAC) is a hospital-in-the-home service, which provides short-term acute health care instead of care which would otherwise be provided in hospital.

The program cares for patients who:

  • are medically stable
  • have access to a telephone
  • are being treated in the Northern Sydney area
  • have a doctor who agrees to be medically responsible.
