Our strategic ambition

As we look ahead, we are excited about our future, and are committed to shaping the future of health in South Australia with world-class care and world-class research. 

We will work towards connecting care with our partners to wrap holistically around our patients both within our facilities and the community and strive to create a workplace where our people are encouraged and supported to achieve the extraordinary, every day.

Our strategic ambitions are a means to ensure we deliver on our world-class care and research goals and will help us to achieve our vision of becoming one of the top-five-performing health services in Australia and one of the top-50-performing health services in the world, within five years.

Our strategic ambitions recognise our commitment to care, community, investment, research, technology and importantly, recognise the influence of our world-class workforce on our ability to achieve our vision.

  • Our care is connected and revolves around the patient in their (and our) community
  • Our curiosity compels us to always do better – research and innovation drives everything
  • We invest in what matters
  • Our technology enables excellence
  • We attract and foster world-class talent

Our strategic ambitions are the outcome of extensive consultation and collaboration with our consumers, executive leadership and staff.

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.
