STH have commenced works on the $50 million upgrade of the Women's and Children's Hospital in Adelaide. The upgrade will allow SA Health to continue providing the highest quality of care while planning continues for a brand-new hospital to be established on the site adjacent to the Royal Adelaide Hospital.
