Strathalbyn and District Health Service provides acute services, ranging from in-hospital care for adults and children by local general practitioners to specialist surgical, outpatients and aged care beds.
Patients may begin their stay at the Strathalbyn and District Health Service but finish their care at one of the neighbouring hospitals with specialist medical or allied health input when required. All hospitals in the area work collaboratively to support the patient care needs of the region.

The Kalimna Hostel 24-bed residential aged care facility was closed in February 2017 due to building and fire compliance issues.
Residents were relocated and existing licenses divested to other services throughout the Country Health SA network for the delivery of respite care using underutilised beds: six at Strathalbyn, five at Gumeracha Hospital, four each at Mt Pleasant and Kapunda Hospitals, two at Barmera Hospital and three at Balaklava Hospital.
In September 2018, Stewart Brown was engaged to provide independent industry advice to the State Government about options for the future use of the Kalimna Hostel site.
For more information, please read the Stewart Brown Kalimna Options Paper (PDF 2MB).
