CODE 1     Co-located

Co-located health services are those that are established physically and organisationally as part of an acute care hospital service. There are two forms of co-location:

  • a health service that is built and managed as a ward or unit within an acute care hospital; or
  • the health service operates in a separate building but is located on, or immediately adjoining, the acute care hospital campus.

In the second option, units and wards within a psychiatric hospital may be classified as co-located when all the following criteria apply:

  • a single organisational or management structure covers the acute care hospital and the psychiatric hospital;
  • a single employer covers the staff of the acute care hospital and the psychiatric hospital;
  • the location of the acute care hospital and psychiatric hospital can be regarded as part of a single overall hospital campus; and
  • the patients of the psychiatric hospital are regarded as patients of the single integrated health service.
