Maternity hospitals

South Australians have access to good obstetric health care and we have the lowest infant mortality rate in the nation. In order to maintain a high quality, safe maternity service in a time of international workforce shortages in the obstetrics speciality, we will bring together services at larger, more modern sites that are better equipped to care for mothers and newborns.


Women's and Children's Hospital

Lyell McEwin Hospital

Flinders Medical Centre


Country general hospitals will offer a core of specialist services provided by resident and visiting specialists, covering obstetrics and gynaecological care and paediatric care. Hospital services will work closely with GP Plus health Care Centres and primary health care teams in delivering maternity services close to home, where it is safe and practical to do so.
