The Tumby Bay Hospital and Lower Eyre Health Service is run by the Eyre and Far North Local Health Network.
The hospital has 16 inpatient beds and provides a range of services including emergency, general medicine, surgical care, and basic x-ray.
There is also an extensive range of Community Health and Allied Health services based at the Esplanade site, as well and child and youth health services.
The Uringa Hostel is a 10-bed hostel providing residential aged care, also located on the Esplanade site.
This is a 24-hour service. When you arrive at accident and emergency, you will be seen by the duty nurse to collect information and assess your illness or injury.
In a medical emergency, it is important that you do not ‘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.
There is disabled parking onsite.
The building is wheelchair accessible and there are toilets for people with disability. Please ask at Reception.
General wards: 10:00 am to 8:00 pm.
