Building an
Even Stronger
Health System

We will deliver more beds, bigger emergency departments and more mental health services with major hospital upgrades across South Australia.

What we'll do

A re-elected Marshall Liberal Government will deliver more beds, bigger emergency departments and more mental health services with over $123 million worth of capital upgrades at major hospitals.

This is part of our $500 million commitment to further expand our health system.

We will deliver 48 extra beds at Lyell McEwin Hospital while future proofing this site by purchasing more land nearby.

We will provide $20 million to expand the Noarlunga Hospital Emergency Department and increase mental health services.

At the Repat, we will build a brand-new, 24-bed unit to provide specialised care for older people and, at Modbury, we will build a new 16-bed dementia facility.

This promise is in addition to the major upgrades already underway at all of these hospitals.

While Labor downgraded these hospitals, our strong economy has enabled us to upgrade hospitals and hire more frontline workers with a record $7.85 billion spent on health this financial year and more doctors, nurses, midwives and ambos than ever before.

  • There will be more beds in our hospitals looked after by more staff
  • Less pressure on emergency departments, fixing ramping
  • More services and better care for older people and mental health patients
  • You and your loved ones can get the healthcare you need, closer to home
