Hospital and Outpatient Services
Moonta Health & Aged Care Service was originally called Moonta Jubilee Hospital and was located overlooking the Queens Square park in the Moonta township, the Hospital was renamed in November, 1990 and relocated its present position and officially opened on the 5th May 1991.
The Hospital is a community owned private not for profit hospital offering 13 acute beds for privately insured patients requiring hospitalization for acute medical conditions, or for recuperation after transfer back from another hospital to be closer to their homes and families.
Moonta Health & Aged Care Service has contracts with all the major health funds (Mutual Community, SGIC, MBF, NIB, Medibank Private) and with the Department of Veterans Affairs.
One of the advantages of having private health insurance is that you can be treated by the doctor of your choice. All local Doctors have admitting privileges at the hospital.
