Our highly skilled and professional staff are dedicated to caring for adults and newborns across a wide range of specialities. The key values of respect, teamwork and quality, create the people-centred environment in which we care for our patients recognising their individual needs and treating them with sensitivity, care and compassion.

Burnside is set adjacent to the tranquil, heritage-listed gardens in a quiet, yet accessible location just ten minutes from Adelaide’s city centre. It has a longstanding reputation for excellence and attracts patients from throughout South Australia, interstate and overseas.

As a not-for-profit community-based organisation, the Hospital reinvests all surplus funds in improving and upgrading services, facilities and equipment.

This year, Burnside Hospital celebrates 60 years of service to the South Australian community.
