Tanunda War Memorial Hospital provides acute services ranging from in-hospital care for adults and children by local general practitioners to specialist surgical and outpatient care.
Patients may commence their stay at Tanunda War Memorial Hospital but finish their care at one of the neighbouring hospitals with specialist medical or allied health input when required. All hospitals in the area work collaboratively to support the patient care needs of the region.
As of Wednesday 3 June, COVID-19 swab testing at Tanunda Memorial Hospital will be consolidated with the drive-through clinic located outside the hospital. The COVID-19 drive-through clinic operates 7-days per week, 9am – 5pm. Tanunda Memorial Hospital will undertake nursing assessments during this time, as required.
Drive-through and walk-through presentations are welcome. No booking or GP referral is required. Those presenting to the existing stand-alone COVID-19 clinic, located at the rear of the hospital, will be safely redirected to the drive-through clinic, located near the front of the hospital. Should there be a significant increase in the numbers presenting for testing, the stand-alone testing clinic will be re-opened.
Due to COVID-19, changes to services, visiting hours and visitor access now apply.

From 5 March 2018, birthing services will no longer operate from Tanunda War Memorial Hospital.
A General Practitioner (GP) shared care model for maternity and obstetric care is being implemented in the Barossa. Under the new model, women can continue to access community midwifery support in the Barossa, including ante-natal and post-natal care, with birthing available at nearby Gawler Health Service or Kapunda Hospital.
The changes are being implemented to ensure women can give birth at a facility with the available staff and resources required to provide the highest level of care.
