It has been a historic month for the Repat, with the Marshall Liberal Government announcing the return of surgical services to the revitalised Repat health precinct.
As a liberal team, both in opposition and now in Government, we listened to our community. We made a promise, that if elected, we would stop the sale of the Repat and reactivate it into a thriving healthcare precinct.
And that is exactly what we did, and what we are continuing to do.
Whilst there is much already occurring at the site, as we breathe life back into the Repat, the latest plans revealed will see up to six operating theatres built in a world class surgical facility. Public patients will be able to access a range of surgical procedures such ophthalmology, orthopaedic, urology and colonoscopy procedures.
Our investment at the Repat forms part of a record $7.4 billion investment in our state’s health system to help fix ramping, ease pressure on hospital emergency departments and deliver quality health care for South Australians, closer to home.
If you would like to hear more about the work we are doing at the Repat I invite you to join me for a Repat Community Forum:

The return of surgery to the Repat is a remarkable milestone for the site. I’m proud to have stood shoulder to shoulder with our community in the fight to save it, and I’m proud to be a part of the Liberal Government that is delivering on our promise to save the Repat and revitalise it.
