INS is a leading family-owned Australian Health Care Company dedicated to delivering quality services that support people in their home. Illawarra Nursing Service is our original name and proud heritage. For over 30 years, we have exclusively staffed our call centres with nurses 24/7. We are a family-owned business proudly located in the Illawarra (Wollongong), and a local employer servicing clients throughout Australia and New Zealand, with further international markets opening soon.
The INS Group was established in 1984 as the Illawarra Nursing Service. As we grew, our health care services division became known as INS Health Care. As one of the oldest care providers in Australia, we have had substantial experience in providing health care services in the community, as well as eHealth, TeleHealth and accompanying assistive technologies.
