South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute facility

In April 2009 the Federal Government announced $200 million funding for SA Health to deliver the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI) facility.

This facility will be co-located with the new Royal Adelaide Hospital in the city’s west end. It will be the first facility to be built within the new health and medical precinct, with completion anticipated by late 2013.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for South Australia to deliver a leading world-class research facility that will foster innovation and improvements in health services and lead to improved health outcomes for the whole community.

The facility will house the headquarters of the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute.

Responding to the recommendations of the Review of Health and Medical Research in South Australia conducted by Professor John Shine AO and Mr Alan Young AM and released in 2008, SA Health coordinated the establishment of the facility in close collaboration with the South Australian research community, health sector and the state’s three major universities to ensure South Australia’s strong position in health and medical research into the future.

SAHMRI was incorporated on 21 December 2009 and is now operating as an independent institute.
