Concept Master Plan released
The Concept Master Plan (PDF 2MB) for reactivating the Repat site is now available.
Dementia services, older persons’ mental health, specialised brain and spinal rehabilitation, care transition and surgical procedures will be offered at the Repat.
A new purpose-built, state-of-the-art brain injury facility will be built to provide a 26 bed specialist inpatient ward and the former rehabilitation wards will be redeveloped to provide for a new 23 bed state-wide spinal injury ward.
Following on from the Oakden recommendations, an 18 bed specialised facility will care for some of the most vulnerable residents suffering extreme behavioural and psychological symptoms of dementia (BPSD). This will form part of a dedicated dementia village, including 60 places of care for people with dementia who have complex care needs
A ‘town square’ will also be developed to create a cultural hub and open outdoor flexible use space including a new wheelchair training/sports gymnasium, refurbishment of the SPF Hall and a new cafe.

Repat Consultation Report
The Repat Consultation Report (PDF 2MB) was released on Tuesday 30 October 2018.
The report identifies the services the community identified as priorities for a revitalised Repat Health Precinct, which includes brain, spinal and community rehabilitation, enduring mental health, day surgery procedures and care transition. The report also identified a range of services that a portion of respondents considered were missing from the proposed concept options. The top six themes of these services were lymphoedema, outpatients, mental health, accommodation, aged care and veteran services.
While the final concept plan is yet to be developed, the public’s feedback demonstrated the community’s strong view that the Repat site needed to be reactivated as a health precinct to take pressure off the health system and provide world-class services for South Australians.
More than 1500 members of the community participated in the community and stakeholder engagement process.
The Repat site is a fundamental piece to the health system and SA Health is dedicated to listening to the community and working closely with key stakeholders on how the site can be rejuvenated in the best interest of the community.
