We offer a range of amenities at Calvary Adelaide Hospital including:
Calvary Adelaide Hospital has been designed so that everyone can easily access our facilities. For visitors and patients, all levels are accessed via the lifts located in the main lobby, which is entered from Angas Street.
A directory for the hospital can be found within this area, along with receptionist staff members and volunteers who will be able to assist you.
There is a Jamaica Blue coffee shop located in the foyer on the ground floor for patients and relatives to purchase food and beverages.
A chapel is located on the first floor at the top of the foyer staircase
It is hoped that whoever uses our chapel will find a place of stillness for reflection, quiet time, privacy or prayer. Please inquire about our regular weekly Mass and ecumenical prayer services.
As it is a sacred space, please do not take food or drinks into the chapel. We commend to you the Stations of the Cross and the chapel leadlight, designed by local artist Meliesa Judge. This sacred art serves as a point of reflection on themes and images that inspired Venerable Mary Potter in her ministry of healing and accompaniment of the sick and the dying.

In collaboration with the Wakefield Sports + Exercise Medicine Clinic, our pre admission clinic provides regular classes for patients undergoing hip or knee surgery.
Flowers and/or gifts will be delivered to your room as they are received.
There are some restrictions to flowers in some areas. We do apologise for the inconvenience if this occurs.
If your hospital stay includes some time in Intensive Care, there are further restrictions so relatives and friends are asked to send ﬂowers once the patient has been transferred to a ward.
Should you feel the need for a little pampering during your stay we can arrange for a hairdresser to visit the hospital.
Calvary Adelaide Hospital has a hydrotherapy pool and two gymnasiums to enhance outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation services. The facility is supported by our team of experienced staff including allied health staff.
It is recognised that the warmth of the water in hydrotherapy treatment relieves pain, reduces muscle spasm and induces relaxation – allowing a greater range of movement and enhanced rehabilitation. The hydrotherapy pool will allow even the most fragile and mobility restricted clients the opportunity of purposeful movement and exercise, leading to a more rewarding lifestyle. Used in conjunction with our high quality rehabilitation service, which includes inpatient, outpatient therapy and community based services, we at Calvary aim to provide a more comprehensive rehabilitation program.
Free daily newspapers are available upon request.
You can buy newspapers and magazines at Jamaica Blue Cafe.
We have a volunteer library service who may visit you during your stay, and we welcome donated books. They are then free for you to take home.
Our pastoral care service provides a ministry of human support, comfort, guidance and/or prayer to all patients regardless of religious belief.
Pastoral care workers work alongside physicians, nurses, therapists and other staff to provide a complete approach to healing.
Pastoral visitors visit regularly from Catholic, Anglican, Lutheran and Jehovah’s Witness denominations.
Your own Parish Priest, Pastor, Rabbi or Spiritual caregiver can be contacted at your request.
Catholic Holy Communion is available Monday to Friday and Sunday as requested.
