"Thank you everyone for all your work on the program," Dr. Spina said Tuesday. "It is truly a pleasure working with all of you on this exciting work."
The Hospital at Home (HaH) program launched out of Victoria General Hospital in November 2020 and expanded to RJH in March of this year. HaH allows for a subset of acutely ill, clinically-stable patients to choose a safe and effective alternative to traditional facility-based in-patient treatment.
HaH patients have 24/7 access to treatment, diagnostics, and hospital-level expertise from the comfort of their own home. Since it was launched, our HaH teams have established clinical workflows and implemented new technologies to support this transformative care delivery model.
