Elizabeth Hunter Lodge Patient & Carer Accommodation

The primary role of Elizabeth Hunter Lodge (known as Hunter Lodge) is to provide accommodation for country, interstate or overseas patients who require treatment at any Sydney hospital or clinic, or with any Sydney medical specialist. Accommodation is also available for their accompanying family members or carer.

All guests must be fully capable of independent living and manage their own meals, mobility, transport and personal care as the residence is not supported by hospital, medical or nursing staff.

Hunter Lodge strives to offer ‘a home away from home’ atmosphere to all guests. Read Lionel's guest experience at the Hunter Lodge.

It is ideally positioned within the Eastern Suburbs rail and bus transport network, with easy access to major hospitals and treatment centres.
