Our hospitals and services
We are committed to Reconciliation
Reconciliation is about strengthening existing connections and establishing new relationships built on mutual understanding, trust and respect with the Aboriginal community of South Australia.
The Central Adelaide LHN (CALHN) Reconciliation Action Plan has been developed to guide, support and hold us accountable as we uphold our values and make reconciliation a reality.
Central Adelaide LHN acknowledges the Kaurna people as the traditional owners of the lands on which its sites are located. We respect their spiritual relationship with their country and that their cultural and heritage beliefs are still as important to living Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people today.
