Empowering Northern Territory Healthcare

Welcome to Remote Territory Healthcare (RTHC), the first private Nurse Practitioner-led healthcare facility in the Northern Territory (NT), dedicated to providing innovative and culturally safe healthcare solutions. Our healthcare philosophy revolves around the Nurse Practitioner model of care, designed to meet the diverse needs of our clients, their families, and the broader community.

Our experienced RTHC team boasts over 50 years of combined experience in the healthcare and business sectors, derived from government, non-government, military, and humanitarian work. Having lived and worked in the NT for over a decade, we have established strong relationships with primary healthcare clinics and rural and remote communities. These connections have allowed us to provide evidence-based health insights and expertise to benefit the community.

RTHC’s Lead Nurse Practitioner, Kylie Straube, is a published author of numerous research articles focusing on understanding the social determinants of health. 

We proudly align ourselves with the Menzies School of Indigenous Health Research and collaborate on studies to improve health outcomes for regional and remote Territorians.
