SA Health will be offering public tours of the new Royal Adelaide Hospital (RAH) over four consecutive days – from Thursday 20 July to Sunday 23 July 2017 inclusive.
The tour days are an opportunity for the community to get an inside look at the new world-class facilities, before the long awaited hospital opens in September 2017.
Tours will be held from 7.30am to 5.30pm daily. Every tour group will be led by a guide and the route will include the main entrance, Emergency Department, Intensive Care Unit, inpatient bedrooms and outpatient consulting rooms.
Tour registration opens 9am Tuesday 27 June 2017.

- No prams, strollers or motorised scooters will be able to enter the hospital.
