The former Repatriation General Hospital (Repat) has been transformed into the thriving Repat Health Precinct. The reactivated Repat campus includes the following facilities:
•26-bed Care Transition Facility for people with dementia and those transitioning to home or aged-care facility following acute care treatment.
•28-bed Brain Injury Ward and 25-bed Spinal Cord Rehabilitation Ward.
•Veterans’ Wellbeing Centre.
•Wheelchair sports gymnasium and rehabilitation gym.
•A town square community hub and open outdoor flexible space in the heart of the campus.
Existing former Veterans’ facilities have been refurbished including the Repat Chapel, Remembrance Gardens, Museum and SPF Hall to preserve these community assets for future generations.
A sensitive approach was taken throughout the consultation process to ensure community and stakeholders were given the opportunity to provide feedback on the design process and outcomes across the precinct.
The outcome of this project has been the revitalisation of a key piece of South Australian history.
