Medibank's Amplar Home Health opens Adelaide headquarters

Amplar Home Health, an in-home care provider that is part of Medibank group, has announced the opening of its new headquarters in Adelaide.

Providing care across Australia, the new headquarters serve as the central hub for Amplar’s network of nurses and allied health practitioners around the country. Featuring technology solutions and innovative amenities, including real-time dashboards, the facility is designed to optimise collaboration and efficiency to deliver timely at-home patient care.

Mike Hutton Squire, Hub Lead Health Operations, Amplar Health, said, “Our new headquarters embodies our vision of providing exceptional care to patients in the comfort of their own homes, while empowering our healthcare professionals with the tools and resources they need to deliver.”

With approximately 1000 at-home visits conducted daily by its team of nurses and allied health practitioners, the provider has geographical coverage to over 97% of the population through its own employees and large network of contracted providers.

“The new building is a visual reminder of the future of healthcare delivery. We are embracing advanced telehealth technologies, live digital mapping, wearable patient technology. In addition, we are in the process of selecting a hybrid vehicle to replace our existing petrol vehicle fleet to reduce our environmental impact.”

“We believe that healthcare should be accessible, personalised and patient-centred,” added Kylie Mayo, Squad Lead Amplar Health. “Our headquarters represents a significant investment in advancing the capabilities of at-home health care, allowing us to meet the evolving needs of our patients and communities.”

At the opening, Chris Picton, South Australian Minister for Health and Wellbeing, said, “This is a great outcome for patients and the hospital system too.

“I get a lot of feedback from patients and it is overwhelmingly positive. They are relieved to be at home instead of hospital and that only happens because of the great team that has hundreds of nurses buzzing around Adelaide. It is a huge logistical effort and a credit to you all,” Picton said.
