Archbishop welcomes new Calvary Adelaide Hospital

News today that construction will begin shortly on the $300 million Calvary Adelaide Hospital has been welcomed by the Catholic Archbishop of Adelaide Philip Wilson.

“I am pleased that Calvary is taking the initiative to build this new hospital,” he said. “It shows its real commitment to continuing to meet the long-term health care needs of all South Australians.”

To be located in the Adelaide CBD, the new hospital will continue the work of the Sisters of the Little Company of Mary, who have served the people of South Australia for more than a century.

A charitable Catholic not-for-profit organisation, Calvary was established by the Sisters in Sydney in 1885, with the mission of providing health care to the most vulnerable, including those reaching the end of their life. Today the organisation provides aged and community care, acute and sub-acute health care and specialist palliative care in six states and territories within Australia.
