The house is a subsidised accommodation project funded by donations of the members, family and friends of the AHLTA.
After a heart and/or lung transplant, patients are required to attend St Vincent’s Hospital for a set of check-ups for at least 12 weeks. A large number of the patients live a long distance from the hospital. Therefore, the AHLTA house has been provided for convenience of these patients who live more than 100 kilometres outside of Sydney.
The property is conveniently located only 400 metres from St Vincent’s hospital.
