About Modbury Hospital

Modbury Hospital opened in 1973 and the Education Centre was built in 1979, followed by the Woodleigh House mental health unit in 1980. In 1995, the hospital management was transferred from public sector management to the private organisation, Healthscope, and was later returned to public sector management on 1 July 2007.

Committed to working in collaboration and partnership, the hospital is affiliated with the University of Adelaide and enjoys a close relationship with the general practitioners in its catchment area. Dedicated to delivering the highest quality teaching, research and community services, the hospital has a proud and strong tradition of providing excellent clinical care.
