Accident and emergency
A 24-hour service is provided.
When you arrive at the emergency department you will be seen by the duty nurse and triaged to collect information and assess your illness or injury.
In a medical emergency, it is important not to ‘self present’ to hospital. SA Ambulance Service emergency medical dispatch support officers can provide advanced first-aid advice over the phone while an ambulance is on its way to you.
The on call doctors are private general practitioners and may require payment of a gap fee. Please bring your Medicare card and concession cards when accessing emergency departments. Pensioners and Health Care card holders are not exempt from paying a gap fee to doctors at our hospital.
Parking is available onsite.
The building is wheelchair accessible and there are toilets for people with disability. Please ask at Reception.
