Arcadia Pittwater is now offering specialist nursing care for patients with more complex care needs.

The hospital’s Corporate Operations Manager Kate Silver says the hospital is now accepting more acute medical admissions than other hospitals in the area and manages more complex medical needs during rehabilitation.

She says staff can manage IV antibiotics, complex wound management, and PICC lines.

“For unwell patients, this means they don’t have to be in an acute care hospital,” Ms Silver says.

She says the hospital is also offering rehabilitation programs for people with Parkinson’s disease and people receiving or recovering from cancer treatment.
