News on the Mount Barker Hospital

South Australians living in the Mount Barker and broader Adelaide Hills community are one step closer to a new hospital, with the location of the new development now confirmed following a rapid site assessment for the $220 million project.

The existing Mount Barker District Soldiers’ Memorial Hospital site has been identified as the most suitable location for the New Mount Barker Hospital, following a review of two potential siting options – the existing site (Brownfield Reference Design) or an alternative site not yet known (Greenfield Alternative site option).

The new hospital will have three times the number of beds than the current hospital and will support more Mount Barker and Adelaide Hills residents to be treated for emergencies locally, closer to where they live.

The rapid site assessment prepared a high-level reference design as a proof of concept for the existing site and SA Health is finalising procurement for an integrated design team that will prepare the New Mount Barker Hospital design in consultation with the local communities, clinicians, key partners and support networks.

We welcome you to express interest in being involved in these important consultations that will help shape a New Mount Barker Hospital. If you are interested, please send your contact details by email to:
