Project summary

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.

South Australia Jury Presentation

The design of the Phase Two elements of the Masterplan to reactivate the former Repatriation General Hospital site into the Repat Health Precinct ensured the existing and new assets on the site created the best value and most sustainable use while also recognising the site’s cultural and community significance.

The design has transformed the site into a contemporary health and wellbeing campus, providing sub-acute care for some of the most vulnerable members of the South Australian community, resulting in significant improvements for these consumers and their families, guaranteeing the site will continue to support the health system for future generations.
