The Cowell Campus is part of the Whyalla Eastern Eyre and Far North Health Services. This 20 bed hospital provides acute and aged care. We serve the District Council area of Franklin Harbour and the surrounding rural community. We also have a 10 room hostel for people requiring a low level of care adjoining the main hospital.

Due to COVID-19, changes to services, visiting hours and visitor access now apply.
For more information see Eyre and Far North LHN response to coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

Accident and emergency

This is a 24-hour service. When you arrive at the emergency department you will be seen by the duty nurse to collect information and assess your illness or injury.

In a medical emergency, it is important that you do not ‘self present’ to hospital. SA Ambulance Service emergency medical dispatch support officers can provide advanced first-aid advice over the phone while an ambulance is on its way to you.

Cowell has a volunteer ambulance service and access to the Royal Flying Doctor Service.
