Acute Care

GREAT ACUTE CARE

Clients presenting with acute, short term conditions that require hospitalisation can be admitted to Apollo Bay (Otway Health) or Lorne (Lorne Community Hospital) Acute Care Unit.

Our units are attended by approved visiting medical officers, nurse practitioners and associated medical staff.

HOW IT WORKS

Acute Care is offered (depending on bed availability) to all residents and visitors in the Lorne and Apollo Bay catchment areas. Our medical teams will assess the client and discuss planned admissions with nursing staff to ensure a bed is available and appropriate care can be provided.
