The CALHN Health Museum manages the CALHN historical collections, to ensure their future preservation. Public access to the collection is also available through its website: https://healthmuseumsa.org.au/
The CALHN Health Museum is located at Hampstead Rehabilitation Centre and is responsible for the medical history of CALHN institutions. Currently this includes Royal Adelaide Hospital, SA Dental, SA Pathology, Hampstead Rehabilitation Centre and The Queen Elizabeth Hospital, plus some private collections as well.
Through its exhibits, educational programs, and public events, the CALHN Health Museum assists in a greater understanding and appreciation of the medical and health care history to past and present employees, students, academic community, and the general public. The CALHN Health Museum also provides research opportunities through the use of its artefacts, manuscripts, images and library collections.
In April 2019, a Significance Assessment was completed on the collection through the National Libraries of Australia. The CALHN Health Museum has been duly accorded status within Australia’s Distributed National Collection and is of outstanding historical significance to the Australian nation.
The CALHN Health Museum is open every Thursday between 10am and 3pm and other times by appointment.
