A significant portion of the South Australia’s 2023-24 State Budget has gone to tackling health.

In the Adelaide Hills, $100.8 million over the coming two years will support the build of the new Mount Barker Hospital.

New Mount Barker, Gawler and Victor Harbor ambulance stations are also being rebuilt with $20 million in funding per annum provided.

SA Health’s transition from the height of the COVID-19 response to a ‘living with COVID’ framework is costing the Government $567 million over four years.

Ambulance ramping will be addressed with $185.8 million over the next four years via a range of programs.

There will be an expansion of the electronic medical record program across regional South Australia, funded by $31.1 million over the three years.
