Strategy and planning
SA Health’s mission is to lead and deliver a comprehensive and sustainable health system that aims to ensure longer, happier and healthier lives for all South Australians
More than 100 volunteers at the hospital work with hospital staff and departments for the benefit of both patients and the wider hospital community.
Volunteers provide a valuable service to many areas of the hospital.
General volunteers assist all areas of the hospital, providing companionship to patients and their families on the wards, arranging flowers, giving hand massages and visiting the kiosk for patients if required.
Newspaper volunteers visit all areas of the hospital with their newspaper trolley, selling newspapers and magazines.
Palliative Care Unit volunteers help out in the hospice, chatting with patients and their families.
Community volunteers offer respite to families.
Day Centre volunteers coordinate social get-togethers in the hospice for community patients and massage volunteers offer free massages to community patients in the hospice.
Hospital Auxiliary members operate the gift shop, kiosk and run trading tables to raise funds for the hospital.
We value all volunteers and the wonderful work that they do for the hospital community.
For more information on volunteering at our hospital, please contact the Volunteer Services Manager on (08) 8161 2000.
The Northern Adelaide Local Health Network (NALHN) Consumer Advisory Council commenced in 2014 after a successful merger between the respective Consumer Advisory Council’s at Modbury and Lyell McEwin hospitals.
NALHN recognises that improving the way people in the northern region access and interact with health services helps to improve overall health and wellbeing.
There has been a proud history of active consumer engagement and input into decisions about health services at Modbury Hospital, within NALHN and more broadly in South Australia by individual and collective members from the Consumer Advisory Council.
If you would like to find out more information about the Consumer Advisory Council and how you can be involved, please visit the NALHN Consumer Advisory Council page.
To secure a caring role for future generations, Modbury Hospital Foundation, a registered charity, was established in 1991 to provide funding for medical research, facilities and equipment to support key areas of the hospital’s development.
In its pursuit of excellence in patient care, research and education, the foundation relies on generous donations from the community. Any support you can give would be greatly appreciated.
