Central Adelaide brings together the Royal Adelaide Hospital (RAH) as a major quaternary facility, The Queen Elizabeth Hospital (TQEH) as a general hospital, Hampstead Rehabilitation Centre, Spinal Rehab Unit and Brain Injury Rehab Unit at the Repat Health Precinct and Glenside Health Service for acute and community mental health rehabilitation. 

The RAH is South Australia’s flagship hospital, providing a comprehensive range of complex clinical care. It is one of Australia’s most technologically advanced healthcare facilities, integrating the latest innovations across health, education and research to deliver world-class care.

The RAH has the state’s only quaternary emergency service, and the Emergency Department is one of the largest and most advanced in Australia, seeing more than 75,000 patients annually.

TQEH is a 303 bed, acute-care teaching hospital that provides inpatient, outpatient, emergency and mental health services to a population of more than 250,000 people living primarily in Adelaide’s western suburbs. The final stage of the $314 million TQEH redevelopment will deliver a larger Emergency Department, a new Intensive Care Unit, Operating Theatres and rehabilitation facility within the purpose-built clinical services building.

While we primarily care for the health needs of the community within Adelaide’s eastern, central and western metropolitan area, our highly specialised capabilities mean many people from rural, remote, interstate and overseas also access our services.

We collaborate with local, national and international researchers to perform world-leading research giving our community access to the latest treatments, leading to better care. Having researchers based within our hospital network is a vital part of improving health outcomes and developing, understanding and taking the latest treatments straight from the lab to our patient’s bedside.

This opportunity is made all the easier with the RAH’s role as a pillar within the Adelaide Biomed City and TQEH’s proximity to the Basil Hetzel Institute.

Central Adelaide also delivers a range of specialised community and clinical health services across the state, including:
