Whyalla Hospital and Health Service is part of the Flinders and Upper North Local Health Network. Whyalla provides a wide range of services utilising local general practitioners, resident specialists, visiting specialists and telemedicine for people in the surrounding areas.
We provide a 24-hour accident and emergency service.
When you arrive at the Whyalla Hospital accident and emergency, you will be seen by nursing staff to collect information and assess your illness or injury.
We have a team of medical practitioners that can be called as required.
In a medical emergency, it is important that you do not ‘self present’ to hospital. SA Ambulance Service staff will provide advanced first-aid advice over the phone while an ambulance is on its way to you.
At the Whyalla Hospital you can choose to be admitted as a Private Patient. Admission as a private patient has benefits for both you and the hospital. For more information please visit attending hospital as a private patient.
Bedside computers have now been installed and are fully operational for patient entertainment in 12 hospitals including Whyalla Hospital and Health Service.
The bedside entertainment services are provided by Telstra and give public patients access to a number of different entertainment options on a pre-paid basis. Private patients will receive this service free of charge.
A major redevelopment of the hospital was undertaken in 2012 and 2013, with new facilities including the Regional Cancer Centre, Integrated Mental Health Inpatient Unit, specialist rehabilitation unit, new surgical services and 48 single patient rooms.
Since 2014, the Whyalla Hospital team has delivered more than 138,000 treatments, consultations, surgeries and procedures. 87,000 people in Whyalla and the surrounding area have had greater access to a range of new services closer to home, as well as providing on site accommodation for out of town patients.
