Reviews of Repatriation General Hospital
The Repatriation General Hospital Daw Park Adelaide, is an older style hospital with buildings added on, remodelled over the years. Which makes the place a little difficult to find your way around. I have had to attend their Out Patient Department over the past two years and have found the staff most helpful, attentive, and very professional. The Medical staff are highly specialised, giving me great confidence in the treatment I have received. Over the past few years, you read in the local paper "this hospital to be closed down". When you look at the ageing statistics of our population, the number of people on huge long term waiting lists, it would seem common sense not to close this hospital down. I spoke to a number of patients today, and they all expressed my sentiments. Why close a very well used popular functioning hospital down? Unfortunately Common Sense has passed away.
Here's a hospital that doesn't look like a hospital! It looks like a sprawling group of buildings - some new, some old - on a big block of land. Parking is scattered throughout, so if you're visiting someone make sure you ask where they're closest too. I spent 15 minutes following from sign to sign to sign to sign so as to find where I was looking for!
Having said that, the facilities inside the wards are great, and the staff are valuable. I especially love the way the wards are laid out on the inside with views out onto the grounds and/or open air areas actually on the inside of the ward so patients can have time in the open air rather than being locked into an airless ward. The cafe on-site has a fairly good range of foods for visitors and their prices are reasonable too.
If I have to go to hospital, here's somewhere I wouldn't mind being.
Clinic B has wonderful staff!!! always friendly, and approachable. i often forget my appointment card, but they dont mind and just write you a new one. (sorry girls!!!) waste on the cards i know, but i thank you muchly for the times i have forgotten and you have made up a new one for me. :)
the infusion clinic has just had a fabulous upgrade and it is beautiful inside, now having two separate rooms that can fit a heap more people in than it used to. it makes for a long day to now being a fun day because of all the company.
