Most likely you've got something blocking your network. Can you
download the source / binary from the CRAN pages (using your
web-browser) and then install from the command line? Hmisc doesn't
require any special tools to build so that shouldn't be too hard.

You can't "escape" CRAN entirely in this case (unless you know where
the source is, which I don't) -- it's the distribution network.
